Ryanair Christmas strike may go ahead in Ireland, Italy and Portugal

An upcoming Ryanair pilot strike has been suspended after the airline agreed to talks - much to the relief of those flying overseas for Christmas.

Impact has this evening suspended a planned one-day strike of Ryanair pilots next Wednesday after company management agreed to recognise the union as the representative of Irish-based pilots.

The union asked management to release its Ryanair pilot representatives to prepare for and attend the meeting.

The Portuguese pilot union has requested a meeting and Ryanair has offered to meet them on Thursday December 21st.

Ryanair has said it is prepared to recognise pilot unions as it seeks to avoid strike disruption over the Christmas period.

However, a majority of pilots used by the airline in Ireland are not directly employed by the company.

Both sides of the dispute are due to discuss Ryanair's announcement on Friday that it would now recognise unions.

"Recognising unions will be a significant change for Ryanair, but we have delivered radical change before, most recently when we launched Ryanair Labs and our highly successful Always Getting Better customer improvement programme in 2013".

There were hopes of a breakthrough yesterday when the airline announced that it would agree to their demand for union recognition.

Ryanair, Europe's second-largest airline by passenger numbers, has been forced to cancel 20,000 flights through to March because of pilot scheduling problems stretching back to September.
