Ryanair has cancelled more than 250 flights this Friday after the pilots in Germany have shown that they go on strike, along with their counterparts in Ireland, Belgium and Sweden.

Thus, the total number of flights that will be justified on Friday on flight 396 as a result, 24-hour layover.

Union pilots in the Netherlands tomorrow to decide if he will join the strike on Friday.

Vereinigung cockpit has announced at a press conference this morning that its members will strike from 3.01 am on Friday and continue till 2.59 am on Saturday.

In his statement, he claimed that all flights scheduled to depart from airports in Germany, during this time will be affected.

The Union said that all the permanent pilots working in the airline Ryanair stations in Germany are on strike.

The German Union said that 96pc the overwhelming approval of the strike vote was “a clear voice” for strikes.

“However, since no superior proposal had been received from Dublin,” he said.

“In his letter from the VC last week, Ryanair management were limited to repeating and summarizing what they considered most relevant negotiating positions instead.”

The President of the EC, Martin Locker, said that the Union demands of better pay and working conditions.

“The improvement would be unthinkable without increasing flight costs,” he said.

He said that Ryanair categorically ruled out any such increase to the talks.

“At the same time, the company showed no interest in finding solutions,” he said. “ It’s only Ryanair who is responsible for the escalation that is happening now.

“The VC expresses the impact on affected passengers, flight attendants, ground service. Passengers can contact Ryanair directly on its scheduled flights, as soon as the company can tell which flights go work.”

Press Secretary of the airline Ryanair said it has cancelled 250 of the more than 2,400 flights scheduled to work on Friday.

He blamed the ATT refuses to give seven days ‘ notice of any “unjustified” Strike, so it can minimize the inconvenience for the customers.

In a statement, he said that the customer will be informed about it today at 3pm and can get a refund or book another flight.

He said that the strike is unnecessary as Ryanair sent VK a revised proposal last Friday in a collective Agreement and called on the Union meet for negotiation.

Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs said he offered to meet the VC yesterday, but he did not respond to the invitation.

“Our pilots in Germany enjoy an excellent working condition”, – he said. “They pay up to €190,000 a year. and, as well as additional incentives, they received a 20pc increase in salaries at the beginning of this year. The Ryanair pilots earn more than 30pcs and 20pcs eurowings more than the Norwegian pilots.”
