More than 100 Ryanair flights cancelled at Charleroi airport next weekend

Ryanair will cancel around 100 of its flights at Charleroi Airport next weekend. This was announced on the airport's website. Unions have called for a strike by pilots working for Ryanair from Belgium.

Saturday, 54 flights to and from Charleroi will be cancelled and 48 on Sunday. The airport asks passengers whose flights have been cancelled not to come to the airport. At Brussels Airport, Ryanair is not cancelling any flights.

The pilots are on strike for better pay. At the beginning of the pandemic, they gave up 20 per cent to help Ryanair survive the crisis. Now that the airline is making a profit, they are demanding higher wages. According to Didier Lebbe, president of the CNE union, more than 80 per cent of pilots are taking part in the strike.
