Around 146 European flights will be cancelled on 10 August because of pilot strikes at Ryanair
Some 148 European flights will be grounded this Friday after Ryanair pilots in Sweden, Belgium and Ireland agreed to a 24-hour strike over working conditions.
Of the cancellations, 104 are to/from Belgium, 22 to/from Sweden and 20 to/from Ireland, Ryanair tweeted on 3 August.
Luxembourg, which is served by Ryanair flights to nine destinations, is not expected to be among the countries impacted.
Passengers whose flights have been cancelled should have been contacted via text or email of the changes. People travelling to or from affected countries on Friday should check with the airline.
The announcement comes after Ryanair pilots in Dublin, who are members of the Irish Pilots’ Association, held two strikes at the start of the school holidays, on 20 and 24 July. Disputes concerned seniority, annual leave arrangements and flight crew transfers between European and North African bases.
The strikes come as several European airlines suffer delays as a result of air traffic controller shortages in France, Germany, UK, Spain and Greece.
