EasyJet pilots' strike in Holland called off

A plan by dozens of easyJet pilots based in Holland to hold a 24-hour strike today is reported to have been called off.

The industrial action was halted pending a court injunction filed by the Dutch Airline Pilots Association against plans by easyJet to bring in strike breakers, the ANP Dutch news agency said.

Around 60 pilots had planned to take part in support of efforts to secure better working hours, pensions and sick pay from the budget airline, the union said.

An eight-hour walkout last week had a limited effect on flights out of Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport since the airline was able to bring in replacement crews from other airports.

Meanwhile, easyJet pledged to operate a normal schedule through industrial action in Brussels today (Friday).

“We plan to operate our normal schedule and expect minimal impact to flights,: the airline said.

“Please be aware that some trains will be cancelled and delayed due to the strike. We therefore advise all customers to allow plenty of time to get to and from Brussels airport and consider using alternative methods of transport.”
