Ryanair cancels flights in Belgium on July 29 and 30 — Passengers can claim compensation!

Thursday, July 27, 2023

Ryanair has announced the cancellation of flights from Belgium once again as pilots based at Brussels Charleroi Airport continue their strike. The industrial action is scheduled for July 29-30, 2023, and comes as pilots demand better wages and improved working conditions. Flight disruptions are expected, affecting flights departing from Brussels South Charleroi Airport (CRL).

Ryanair strike at Charleroi — Why are Ryanair pilots striking?

Ryanair Belgian pilots are on strike because they want their wages to be restored. They had to give up 20% of their salaries at the start of the corona crisis, and now they're asking to be compensated. Another issue is their work schedule; Ryanair is currently considering reducing pilots’ rest time in between flights.

Note that this is the second Ryanair Belgium strike this month. On July 15th and 16th, around 40% of Ryanair's Belgian flights had to be cancelled.
