Pilots will strike for 24 hours on Thursday. The strike will begin at 1am  and end at 1am the next day.



They are taking action following a conflict over management’s approach to the transferring of pilots between it's African and European bases.

Ryanair said only some services will be affected by the strike. Flights from Ireland to Europe will continue as normal.



The airline has issued a statement following the strike announcement. They said they tried their best to avert this disruption, but it will go ahead on Thursday.

"All customers on these flights have received text and email notification of these cancellations earlier today and our Customer Service teams are assisting them with refunds, free transfers to alternative flights on Thursday, or Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.

"For customers travelling to the UK we will also be assisting them with alternative transport on comparable operators (both flights & ferries) where there is some limited space available."
