Ryanair now facing strike action by pilots in five countries tomorrow

Ryanair is now facing strike action by pilots in five countries tomorrow as part of a 24-hour stoppage.

Pilots based in the Netherlands were the latest group to join the action when they announced last night that efforts to reach a collective labour agreement had failed.

The company is expected to ask a Dutch court later today to halt the action by the Dutch pilots’ union.

Pilots are also set to strike in Ireland, Sweden, Belgium, and Germany.
