On Wednesday afternoon Ryanair won their High Court bid to prevent pilots going on a 48-hour strike in Ireland this week.

Justice McDonald said, “he would restrain the immediate industrial action” of 180 pilots on Thursday.

Also, on Wednesday the low cost airline went to the Hight Court in London to get an injunction to prevent British pilots from striking in the UK.

Ryanair said in a statement after the hearing in Dublin, the decision “will come as a huge relief to thousands of Irish passengers and their families during the last week of the school holidays.”

Adding, “All Ryanair flights scheduled to depart on Thurs 22nd and Fri 23rd from Irish airports will now operate as normal.”
