Ryanair cancels 190 flights ahead of Friday strike
26 September 2018 @ 12:00

LOW-COST carrier Ryanair has cancelled 190 out of its 2,400 flights scheduled for this Friday (September 28) due to the cabin-crew strikes in Spain, Portugal, Italy, Belgium, Germany and The Netherlands.

This is around 8% of the Irish airline's flights, and will affect about 30,000 passengers.

Ryanair, in a press release, says it has today contacted all travellers booked on the cancelled flights to rearrange their trips or provide refunds.

According to the company, it 'sincerely regrets' what it calls 'unnecessary disruption' for customers, and claims that in the last few weeks it has made 'significant progress' in negotiations with the various unions in the UK, Ireland, Italy and Germany.

Managing director Kenny Jacobs says there is 'no need' for the industrial action, which he says is 'harming the business' and 'reducing customer confidence' at a time when fuel prices are rocketing.

“If they continue, we will unavoidably have to reconsider our capacity for growth for this winter and for summer 2019,” Jacobs says.

He is calling for unions to 'use their common sense' and 'cooperate' with Ryanair to 'finalise agreements that benefit cabin crew and pilots in the next few weeks'.
