IAG, Ryanair and others call for French strikes to stop
Legacy and low-cost airlines are uniting again, this time to push the European Union to let controllers from neighbouring countries run the French skies during future strikes.
IAG, which includes British Airways and Iberia, as well as Ryanair and easyJet, will join forces after the Brexit referendum to demand strike-busting European control of French airspace.
The plan would get neighbouring countries like Germany to manage French skies if there is a strike. Such strikes have forced the cancellation of thousands of flights so far this year. More are likely, with one scheduled for June 14.
Using the alliance banner Airlines for Europe, the chief executives of IAG, easyJet and Ryanair will share a platform in Brussels in June to pressure the EU to merge airspace.
“It is the right of anyone to go on strike but it cannot be allowed to affect everyone in Europe,” a spokesman for Airlines for Europe said.
