The Irish budget airline Ryanair has announced a reduction in employment in Dublin and the hiring of new employees from Poland for their charter flights, Ryanair Sun reports, IAR news agency reports from the Polish radio.
Up to 300 people may lose their jobs, but Ryanair has said it would offer existing staff jobs at other bases, including in Poland, according to IAR.
Meanwhile, Ryanair told Polish Radio that it was too early to say how many new jobs would be created in Poland, but IAR said that ten planes would fly for Poland-based Ryanair Sun next year, which is double its current fleet.
Ryanair’s announcement was made amid a pilot’s strike which grounded hundreds of flights to and from Spain, Italy, Portugal and Belgium, including about a dozen Polish connections.
Pilots and airline attendants want better pay and conditions, such as for Ryanair to cover the cost of their hotel stays and airport transfers when their work means they need to spend a night away.
But IAR reported that Ryanair said that a British pilot makes upwards of GBP 219,000 (PLN 1 million, EUR 245,000, USD 289,000) per year while a beginner airline attendant from Belgium earned GBP 22,500 per year.
