Dutch Ryanair pilots plan Friday strike as carrier takes union to court

Ryanair strike Dutch pilots are disputing working conditions

Hundreds of Ryanair flights will not take off as planned on Friday due to pilot strikes in five countries.

Ryanair, which flies in 37 countries and carried 130 million passengers last year, averted widespread Christmas strikes last year by agreeing to recognise trade unions for the first time in its 33-year history.

Ryanair has refused to issue a list of the flights cancelled, but The Times understands that at least 50 departures from the United Kingdom have been called off, with more than 250 cancelled in Ireland. But the figure could rise to 82 flights if routes between the Dutch city of Eindhoven and the Spanish cities of Reus and Valencia are finally canceled, after a court said on Thursday that Dutch pilots may join the walkout.

He said they earn up to €190,000 (£170,000), which was more than their peers at budget rival Eurowings made.

Thousands of Ryanair customers have been affected by strike action today.

He has held an 11 per cent stake in the business since 2014, and also owns close to 30 per cent of Debenhams, its main rival. On Oxford Street in London, the two are next door to each other.


The outspoken O'Leary has in recent years tried to soften Ryanair's abrasive public image, fearing it could be counter-productive for Europe's most profitable airline.

But there have been protests ever since over the negotiating of collective labour agreements.

Staff in Ireland, Germany, Sweden, Belgium and the Netherlands are staging a 24-hour walkout over pay and conditions.

Belgium-based Ryanair pilots gather at Charleroi Airport as part of a European-wide strike.

Customers were notified as early as possible and a majority of those affected had already been moved to another Ryanair flight, the airline added.

In an open letter to transport commissioner Violeta Bulc, the federation said the EC had a duty to prevent "social dumping" - where companies take advantage of lax employment legislation in different countries - and warned there are risks of new traffic disruptions "in the weeks and months to come". 'The strike may go ahead, ' a judge said.

Ryanair insists it will not change the low-priced model that transformed the industry and has made it Europe's most profitable airline.

German pilot representatives said on Wednesday they were joining the strike action because they want pay and work conditions comparable to those at Ryanair's competitors.

Ryanair has further angered unions by threatening to move jobs away from bases affected by stoppages, and began carrying that out in Dublin where it cut its winter fleet by 20 percent and put over 300 employees on preliminary notice.
