Ryanair warns of lingering airport misery amid Europe-wide strike action

Wednesday, Jun 22, 2022 0

Ryanair boss Michael O’Leary warned air travel disruption could linger for months.

It comes as strikes could take place across Europe.

Industrial action by cabin crew is possible in France, Italy, Spain, Portugal and Belgium.

There is planned action in Belgium and Portugal on June 24-26, then France from June 25-26 as well as in Italy on June 25.

UK cabin crew are not striking, but the dispute could severely affect summer holidays for Britons.

Referring to general short staffing issues, it is ‘one of the by-products of the struggle to recover smoothly from two years of COVID lockdown and government mismanagement.’

Ryanair will get nearly 100% of our people to their destinations, albeit with delays,” O’Leary told Sky News.

“But it will be a less than satisfactory experience and this problem will not be resolved until we start allowing European workers to come in and do the jobs that, frankly, UK people no longer wish to do.”

EasyJet cabin crew in Spain are also set-to strike in July.
