Ryanair pilots have announced they are to strike at the start of the Bank holiday on 22 to 23 August, which will affect thousands of passengers travelling between the UK and Ireland.

The pilots who work in Ireland are members of Irish Airline Pilots’ Association (ALPA) gave Ryanair notice on Wednesday.

A statement from IALPA reads, “The union said that the Irish Airline Pilots’ Association (IALPA) had submitted a 30-page proposal to Ryanair management in March of this year, which sought pay levels and structures it says are in line with sector norms.

“The IALPA claim also included proposals on pensions, working conditions and related matters.”
