ITAA Issues Response to Cancelled Aer Lingus Flights

The Irish Travel Agents Association (ITAA) has issued a statement responding to the Aer Lingus cancelled flights next week due to industrial action. The ITAA is once again calling for all parties involved in the Aer Lingus pilots’ industrial action to resume negotiations and come to a swift resolution for consumers. 

Angela Walsh, President of the ITAA said: “The ITAA is urging Aer Lingus and unions to reach a resolution. Industrial action over the summer months causes serious impact for both holidaymakers and corporate travellers, which we have seen with the cancellation of flights in advance of the indefinite period of work-to-rule which takes place from next Wednesday.” 

“The consumer is ultimately at the heart of this. We are in the busiest travel period of the year, with seriously damaging effects on both inbound and outbound tourism, the leisure holiday market, business travel and for family members flying to see their loved ones. We are urging the airline and the pilots to put the consumer first in an effort to avoid such disruption to travel plans.

Industrial action by Aer Lingus pilots is due to start on Wednesday 26 June 2024.
