Hundreds of flights canceled in Europe due to strike pilots “Ryan air”
The pilots staged the biggest strike in the history of Ryan air Airlines, at the height of the summer holiday season, on Friday to demand new contracts with better wages and working conditions.
At the Vizi airport near the German-Dutch border, workers and pilots stopped working because of the strike, while nearly 400 flights were canceled all over Europe in anticipation of 24 hours of service interruption, and pilots from Belgium, Sweden, Ireland, the Netherlands and Germany are also scheduled to take part.
The strike affects 55,000 passengers, most of whom will be affected (about 42,000) in Germany, and passengers will have the option of rescheduling their flights for free or recovering their money. Ryan-air will not compensate passengers for more.
The pilots of the German airline Ryan air have joined the strikes of low-cost airline across Europe, prompting the company to cancel 250 flights to and from Germany at the height of the summer holiday season.
