A cabin crew strike in the middle of the holiday season has led to the cancellation of flights to several European countries on Ryanair, Europe’s largest low-cost airline. Ryanair staff went on strike in Belgium, Spain and Portugal on Friday, canceling several flights. Belgian media reports that 127 flights will be canceled at Charleroi airport alone.
Ryanair confirmed that less than two of the 3,000 flights on Friday (June 24) were affected by the strikes, limited to minor disruptions in Belgium, where more than 60 per cent of Ryanair’s scheduled flights will operate today.
“There were no flight disruptions with the majority of Ryanair staff working normally in Italy, Spain, Portugal, UK, France and Ireland. Ryanair expects minimal (if any) disruption to flight plans this weekend (June 25 and 26). As a result of these very short and unsupported work stoppages, ” it said in a release.
However, Ryanair expects “some disruption on Saturday/Sunday – mainly in France, Italy and Spain – due to a two-day strike at the French air traffic control center in Marseille, causing significant delays or disruptions to flights through French airspace”. “.
