flight cancellations

  • Ireland West Airport  has confirmed that cancelled Lanzarote flights today due to industrial action by Ryanair across Europe, will operate tomorrow

    The Ryanair service to/from Ireland West Airport Knock to Lanzarote have been cancelled due to industrial action by Ryanair staff in a number of European countries.

    Almost 300 flights are cancelled because of the stoppage by cabin crews in Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands, Portugal, Italy and Germany.

    They are walking out for 24 hours over working conditions.

    The airline says emails or texts were sent to around 30-thousand affected customers.

    The Lanzarote service into Ireland West Airport was due in at 11.30am, while the outbound service was due to depart at 11.55am. Both have now been cancelled and have been re-scheduled for tomorrow.

     

     

  • The Aer Lingus service to and from Ireland West Airport Knock to London Gatwick this afternoon has been cancelled.

    The cancellation is due to the fact that a drone has forced London Gatwick to close.

    The drone is still flying above the runway and has caused huge disruption so far, with 16 flights from Dublin Airport either cancelled or diverted.

    British police haven’t tracked down the person flying the drone and says it is a deliberate act.

    Thousands of passengers trying to get home for Christmas have been left stranded.

  • Ryanair has announced it will cancel up to 30 Irish flights this Thursday, during a strike by pilots.

    The airline says only some services between Ireland and the UK will be affected, while all Ireland to Europe flights will operate as normal.

    Dublin-based pilots are holding a one day stoppage in a row over working conditions.

    Ryanair says customers whose flights are affected by the strike will have received a text or email today notifying them of the cancellations.

    Customers who have not received a text or email should arrive as scheduled at their departure airport.
