Belgian Ryanair pilots on strike 15-16 July: the impact is still not clear

Belgian Ryanair pilots on strike 15-16 July: the impact is still not clear

This summer will again be one of the strikes, either in France, or in Eurocontrol, or in airlines such as Ryanair. In Belgium, the pilots’ union confirmed the work stoppage on 15 and 16 July. Despite the unfavorable period for the Irish budget prospectus, Ryanair’s management does not expect any problems.

The reason for this two-day strike is a long-running dispute between Ryanair and pilots based in Belgium. This time the situation flared up when Ryanair’s management announced that it plans to change flight and rest schedules for pilots from October. These schedules are set in the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CAO), which remains in effect until October 2024. The Social Inspectorate has already confirmed in writing that Ryanair cannot unilaterally change these schedules.

It is still uncertain how many flights over He hits will be affected. Charleroi Airport reports that they are waiting for information from Ryanair, which is usually only available 48 hours in advance. In the previous measures, about fifty flights per day were affected at Charleroi Airport.

Ryanair itself says it doesn’t expect any major disruption from the strike. “More than half of our flights to Charleroi are served by expatriate employees,” Responds to the Irish Budget Bulletin. Pilots should negotiate rather than strike. But if they choose to strike, they have that right.”
