Ryanair France and Belgium pilots demand Ryanair to respect local labour laws

Ryanair Belgium pilots’ demands have remained the same since the beginning: they want Ryanair to comply with the local working law by improving the working conditions and respecting the minimum wage.

ACV-CNE, a Belgian union, speaks in a statement about the "arrogant" behaviour of Ryanair management that, despite previous demands, would continue to refuse to implement local labour laws.

To make the demands heard, Ryanair France pilots are planning to join their Belgian colleagues in the strike. Cabin crew unions are also considering joining. All this will most likely cause a lot of flight disruption across Europe.

Ryanair France and Belgium strike: what if my flight is delayed or cancelled?

If your flight is delayed or cancelled due to the Ryanair France and Belgium strike, you might be eligible for flight compensation and/or flight refund under the EU261 regulations.

  • Flight delayed compensation: You can claim flight compensation if your flight was more than 3 hours late upon arrival.
  • Flight cancelled compensation: You can get flight compensation for your cancelled flight if the cancellation was announced fewer than 14 days before the departure date. 

You can also ask for a full monetary refund of your flight ticket if you did not take an alternative flight offered by the airline, or were not offered one at all.

Note that the airline must be the party at fault for the delay or cancellation to get flight compensation. — Lucky you! If your flight is delayed or cancelled because of the Ryanair France and Belgium pilots' strike, the airline is responsible for all flight disruptions!

The amount of the flight compensation you can get depends on the distance of your flight:
