Cheap flights operator Ryanair has called for EU a

first_imgCheap flights operator Ryanair has called for EU action against ATC strikers, after revealing it has cancelled 1,400 flights and delayed a further 12,000 already this year because of industrial action across Europe.Flights to France, Spain and Belgium were all disrupted last week as a result of walkouts by air traffic controllers.The frustrated carrier explained that airlines and passengers suffer the costs of such action without any recourse against unions that decide to strike.It is now urging the European Commission to remove the ‘right to strike’ from vital airport services such as the ATC, because it believes existing legislation is “unfit for purpose”.Ryanair chief executive Michael O’Leary asked: “How many more times will Europe’s airlines and their passengers be disrupted by unnecessary airspace closures, strikes and work to rules before the EU Commission finally takes some action?”Last month, the airline operated ‘hand baggage only’ flights to Spain and back on September 29th, to avoid further cancellations due to strike.ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map RelatedFlights from Tallinn to be introduced by RyanairFlights from Tallinn to be introduced by RyanairSpain Strike AdviceHere’s some advice on how the Spanish strike may affect you flightSkyscanner search traffic jumps following cancelled Edinburgh Ryanair flightsPassengers stranded by Ryanair’s Edinburgh flight cancellations are searching Skyscanner for alternativeslast_img read more
