Ryanair admits passengers could face disruption over busy Easter and summer periods
Passengers hoping to fly with the Airline may end up disappointed as the airline forecast future cancellations.
In a statement made on Tuesday, chief executive Michael O’ Leary announced that continued talks with pilot unions are to blame.
Flights into and out of Ireland and Portugal are expected to suffer the most.
The statement warns of disruption over two popular flight periods – Easter and summer.
At the beginning of the year Ryanair allowed a union to represent their British pilots.
This meant that UK pilots would be able to negotiate better working conditions including an increase in pay and holiday.
The statement warns of disruption as union talks drag on
We are very close to concluding agreements in Spain and Italy and expect them to be finalised within the next month
This change came as a surprise as the airline has previously been against union representation.
However, talks with the union have dragged on longer than expected with no agreement yet signed.
O’Leary, announced at a Brussels news conference: “We are very close to concluding agreements in Spain and Italy and expect them to be finalised within the next month”.
“I urge Ryanair to agree deals with pilot unions in other countries and with cabin crew unions.”
However it appears talks are not going to plan if disruption to holidaymakers is set to continue.
Passengers looking to fly with the airline – especially over Easter – are warned that their plans could be halted.
