Ryanair strike – latest updates: 400 flights cancelled as pilots in Germany, Belgium, Sweden and Ireland plan Friday walkout

Ryanair pilots in Sweden, Belgium and Ireland have confirmed a one-day strike is going ahead on Friday 10 August.

Some 20 of the airline’s 300 flights (7 per cent) to and from Ireland have been cancelled, affecting 3,500 passengers. The walkout in Belgium has resulted in the cancellation of 104 flights, while 22 services will be grounded in and out of Sweden.

Ryanair has described the strikes as “unnecessary” and said it will reaccommodate or refund all affected passengers.

The low-cost airline is still awaiting confirmation of whether pilots in Germany and the Netherlands will strike on the same day, but has requested seven days’ notice “so that we can notify our customers of cancelled flights in advance and offer them alternative flights or refunds.”



The airline’s chief people officer, Eddie Wilson, said: “Ryanair now feels the only way to introduce common sense is by way of third party mediation, and to this end is suggesting Mr Kieran Mulvey formerly of the Labour Commission and Workplace Relations Commission.


“His background and experience could be a positive influence.”
