Irish low-cost airline Ryanair has cancelled two flights between Bratislava and Brussels scheduled for Friday, September 28 due to a strike by cabin crew. As a result, there will be no plane from Brussels-Charleroi airport, scheduled to arrive at Bratislava at 12:25 and no plane to Brussels-Charleroi, scheduled departure from the Slovak capital at 12:50, the TASR newswire reported.

The cabin crew’s strike may also endanger Friday’s 18.10 flight from Bratislava to Eindenhoven, Netherlands. Currently the flight is going ahead as scheduled, but Ryanair informed travellers on the routes from Bratislava to Brussels-Charleroi and to Eindenhoven that they could re-book their flights for another day free of charge.

Ryanair has given the possibility of the strike and its efforts to minimise any inconvenience that this might cause to its passengers, as the reason.

Ryanair has pre-cancelled 190 of its 2,400 scheduled flights on Friday, September 28 due to a strike by cabin crew in Spain, Belgium, Holland, Portugal, Italy and Germany. This will affect 30,000 passengers.

The low-cost airline labelled these strikes as unnecessary as it has made significant progress in recent weeks with union negotiations, which include pilot and/or cabin crew agreements in Ireland, the UK, Italy and Germany. Ryanair has cancelled hundreds of flights due to strikes by its pilots and cabin crew this summer.
