Thousands of passengers are expected to suffer as Ryanair pilots have gone on coordinated 48-hour strikes in Belgium, Portugal and Spain on 25 and 26 July, forcing the airline to cancel more than 12 per cent of its flights.

The latest disruption comes as the Irish Airline Pilots’ Association, which is part of the Fórsa trade union, is in dispute with Ryanair over pay and conditions.

“These strikes are entirely unjustified and will achieve nothing other than to disrupt family holidays,” Ryanair clarified in a statement.

The Irish airline added that it expected disruption to the travel plans of almost 50,000 customers as it would cancel up to 300 flights per day.
