Ryanair granted injunction preventing Irish pilot strike

Ryanair has won its legal battle in the Irish High Court to prevent its Irish pilots from striking tomorrow and Friday.

All flights scheduled to depart in the next two days from Irish airports will operate as normal, the airline said.

Around 180 pilots who are members of the Irish Airline Pilots’ Association, which is a branch of the Fórsa union, had planned to take industrial action in a dispute over pay and conditions.


A hearing in London’s High Court seeking an injunction preventing walkouts by UK pilots is ongoing.

Members of the British Airline Pilots Association are due to strike on Thursday and Friday, as well as on September 3-5.
