Ryanair proposes mediator for Irish pilots union talks
Ryanair flights A wave of strikes have resulted in hundreds of flights cancelled
05 August, 2018, 22:43
"Ryanair believes that this is because FORSA are not in control of the process, it is being driven by a tiny handful of Aer Lingus pilots who are now working with other pilot unions across Europe to co-ordinate a day of disruption on Friday 10 Aug next".
Kenny Jacobs, chief marketing officer at Ryanair, commented: "Regrettably, nearly 200,000 Ryanair customers had their flights cancelled in July because of repeated ATC staff shortages in the UK, Germany and France, adverse weather, and unnecessary pilot and cabin crew strikes".
"Ever since Ryanair in December 2017 announced that it will be recognising unions for pilots all over Europe, the developments have been similar everywhere".
Ryanair pilots from Belgium and Sweden have already announced a strike on the same date.
Forsa said in a statement: "Ryanair's announcement that it will accept independent third-party assistance in its dispute with pilots, which was made without preconditions, is an unexpected and positive development".
So far that has forced Ryanair to cancel 6% of the more than 2,400 flights it has scheduled across Europe next Friday - a further 20 to and from Ireland, 22 in and out of Sweden and 104 in Belgium.

"Ryanair again calls on FORSA to remove these Aer Lingus pilots from the process since they have no interest in meeting or resolving this dispute, they just want to damage Ryanair's business and our share price for the benefit of Aer Lingus".
