Pilots announce more strike action


Ryanair is facing two more days of strike action by some pilots based in Ireland, BBC claims.

A pilots union announced that the 24-hour strikes will take place on Friday, July 20, and Tuesday, July 24.

The news comes after the airline faced its first day of industrial action in Ireland since it bowed to pressure from staff and recognised trade unions. Ryanair cancelled 30 flights between Ireland and the UK because of Thursday's 24-hour strike.

Ryanair is facing further strikes in Spain, Portugal, Italy and Belgium later in the summer.

Unions have said further action may follow if the airline does not make concessions on some employment terms.
