Aer Arann pilot action called off
Planned industrial action by pilots at Aer Arann scheduled to commence later this week has been called off.
In a joint statement this afternoon the pilots’ union, IALPA, and Aer Arann management said agreement had been reached in a dispute believed to be over rosters and pay.
The airline and the union said the planned four-day industrial action which was scheduled to commence from July 27 had been terminated.
“There is now procedural agreements in place to address the main issues which gave rise to the dispute.”
The statement said that both parties believed that a satisfactory conclusion to the dispute has been established.
Aer Arann said that customers could be assured that all of its services would continue to operate as normal.
Aer Arann operates all Aer Lingus Regional services under a franchise agreement between the two airlines.
Aer Arann interim chief executive Sean Brogan said: “‘I am pleased that a speedy and comprehensive outcome to this matter has been achieved.
"Our passengers can continue to have the certainty they need when making their travel plan," he added.
