“Aer Lingus Pilots’ Strike Persists in Ireland”

Dublin: The Aer Lingus pilots’ strike continues to disrupt travel across Ireland, causing significant challenges for thousands of passengers and the airline. Amid the busiest travel season, Aer Lingus has cancelled an additional 122 flights, bringing the total number of cancellations to 392.

The pilots’ union issued a strike notice demanding a 23.8% pay increase over three years. The union highlighted that Aer Lingus is projected to make a profit of €225 million in 2023, a 400% increase from the €45 million profit in 2022. Despite the Labour Court’s intervention and subsequent negotiations, no resolution has been reached.

In a show of solidarity, striking Aer Lingus pilots, led by the Irish Air Line Pilots Association, organised a protest march to Dublin Airport. Clad in full uniform and carrying placards and banners, the pilots began their march from the Aer Lingus head office. The demonstration, which took place amid heavy rain, resulted in significant traffic congestion around the airport.

Following the march, pilots formed a picket line at the airport entrance. Their efforts were supported by fellow Airline Pilots Association members from Boston, Orlando, and Seattle, who also formed picket lines in solidarity with the Aer Lingus pilots.
