Derry holidaymakers urged to check their flights after Ryanair pilots agree to strike next Thursday

Derry holidaymakers have been urged to check their flights after Ryanair pilots based in Ireland voted to strike for 24 hours on Thursday, July 12. The date marks the start of the traditional holidays in the north - known locally as the 'Derry fortnight'. It is likely to affect thousands of holidaymakers who travel to Dublin for flights at that time of year. Although only pilots based in the Republic of Ireland voted to strike, the union has warned it could have knock-on effects for flights elsewhere. The dispute is over management's approach to transfers between bases.
