Some Irish-based Ryanair pilots to go on strike on December 20th

Ryanair pilots who are members of the Irish Airline Pilots' Association (IALPA) are to go on strike on Wednesday December 20th.

Irish-based, directly-employed pilots - mostly captains - will withdraw their labour in an action that IMPACT says will either disrupt flights or "generate substantial costs" to the airline.

In a statement, Ryanair said the threatened action is by less than 28% of its Dublin pilots - and the company noted it will deal with any disruptions to flights "if or when they arise".
