Kerry flights affected in latest Ryanair pilot strikes

Ryanair is going to be hit by more strike action.

Its pilots in Germany are going to walk out for 24 hours on Friday, joining those in Sweden and Belgium and here at home.

The budget airline said last year that it would recognise trade unions, but has yet to agree a collective pay deal.

Pilots in the Netherlands are also considering striking – 2-thousand-400 flights have already been cancelled.

The FR5705 from Frankfurt-Hahn to Kerry and the FR5706 from Kerry to Frankfurt-Hahn are cancelled this Friday as a result of the industrial action.

The cancellation is impacting over 180 Kerry passengers.

Kerry Airport confirmed that all affected passengers will be contacted by Ryanair.

The Kerry to Berlin service is operating as normal.

Basil Sheeran of Kerry Airport says they hope no more flights will be affected as a result of the strike.
