  • Ryanair pilots have suspended a pre Christmas one-day strike union bosses have announced

So far there has been no response from unions to say if that is enough.

Ryanair pilots in Portugal decided on Sunday to suspend their strike set for December 20 after the company agreed to recognise the unions and negotiate on Friday in a surprise decision, Portugal's Union of Civil Aviation Pilots (SPAC) said.

An upcoming Ryanair pilot strike has been suspended after the airline agreed to talks - much to the relief of those flying overseas for Christmas.

Ryanair has also claimed that they have offered to meet IALPA and their Ryanair pilot committee on Tuesday, December 19, "if that would suit them better".

Up to 117 members of the Irish Airline Pilots' Association still plan to strike on Wednesday.

Trade union IMPACT released a statement this evening declaring the suspension of the strike action.

A spokesman added: "Once we meet, we can take a decision on deferring industrial action".

"It has invited each of them to talks to recognise these unions and the representative bodies for pilots in Ryanair in each of these countries", said Mr Byrne.

He stressed it was vital that both the company and the union meet so the next phase in resolving the dispute could be agreed.

Union chiefs had earlier insisted the strike action would go ahead unless management agreed to meet before Wednesday.

Pilots in Germany have voted to take industrial action during the Christmas period and German union Vereinigung Cockpit said the onus was now on Ryanair to "prove that this announcement is serious".

"Union meetings planned next week and January".

The carrier admitted it had "messed up" the planning of its pilots' holidays.
