DUBLIN: Ryanair flights to and from British airports are operating without disruption on Friday, the budget airline said, on the second day of a 48-hour strike by its British-based pilots.
The airline said it expected no disruption to its British and schedule on Friday.
An Irish court granted an injunction on Wednesday to prevent pilots striking, but London court rejected a similar application for its British pilots.
Ryanair has said the striking pilots represent less than 30% of those operating its aircraft in Britain.
A five-day strike by Ryanair cabin crew in Portugal meanwhile began Wednesday, but disruption was limited after the country’s government ordered workers to deliver at least a minimum service.
Elsewhere, Ryanair cabin crew in Spain have called for ten days of strikes in September.
