Ryanair strike under way after talks with pilots fail

Ryanair strike action Dublin airport cancellations

Low-priced airline Ryanair has cancelled 30 flights on Thursday after talks with pilots ended without an agreement.

But they have reassured passengers that all Ireland to Europe flights will operate as normal.

More than 5,000 Ryanair customers have been left with cancelled flights as a result.

Scheduled flights between Ireland and the United Kingdom will face the brunt of the action, as Ryanair faces its second strike since recognising unions for the first time in December.

Ryanair says it has made alternative arrangements for around 5,000 passengers affected by the cancellation of 30 of its 290 scheduled flights today.

The airline said they have made alternative travel arrangements using both flights and ferries for nearly 5,000 passengers.

Flights from Dublin to Gatwick, Birmingham, Newcastle, Liverpool, Bristol and Manchester have all been affected.

The pilots' union Fórsa, of which the Irish Airline Pilots' Association (IALPA) is a branch, had earlier said it was not optimistic that a deal could be reached to avert the strike.

The Irish carrier blamed the Forsa union for the breakdown in negotiations after seven hours of talks.

"We have tried to avert this disruption, which is unnecessary given Ryanair pilots' and their union FORSA has received written proposals on seniority, annual leave and base transfers, which are what FORSA claims are the reasons for this strike, yet FORSA has rejected 21 separate invitations to meet Ryanair to negotiate these documents".

Both sides have said they remain available for talks and want to resolve their difficulties. German pilots are expected to vote over a pay and working conditions dispute later this month.

The airline said in a statement: "We regrettably must plan for some disruptions on Thursday, and try to minimise their impact, especially upon Irish customers and their families travelling on holidays to Portugal, France, Spain, Italy and Greece".

Ryanair is facing its first day of industrial action in Ireland since the airline bowed to pressure from staff and recognised trades unions.
