Ryanair pilots in Portugal decided on Sunday to suspend their strike set for December 20 after the company agreed to recognise the unions and negotiate on Friday in a surprise decision, Portugal's Union of Civil Aviation Pilots (SPAC) said.

The union had warned industrial action would go ahead unless company management arranged to meet before Wednesday - the day of the planned strike.

IMPACT has suspended the action threatened by pilots next Wednesday.

However, the strike has not been officially called off and uncertainty remains for passengers booked on certain flights during one of the busiest travel periods of the year.

Update - 4.51pm: Ryanair have said that pilot unions in Ireland and Germany have agreed to meet them on Wednesday, December 20, to discuss union recognition.

"The union asked management to release its Ryanair pilot representatives to prepare for and attend the meeting", the statement read.


The announcement was made on Sunday night by the Impact trade union which also represents in this case Ialpa, the pilots' union.

An upcoming Ryanair pilot strike has been suspended after the airline agreed to talks - much to the relief of those flying overseas for Christmas.

However, Impact/Ialpa said it would not call off the action unless Ryanair met union representatives before the proposed strike was due to take place.

Ryanair has agreed to recognise pilots' unions in an attempt to avert Christmas strikes in a "significant change" from its long-standing position. Ryanair said: "We'll do all we can to minimise disruption".

"Union meetings planned next week and January".
