19th October 2007 Print
Following successful negotiations over the weekend at the LRC between the company and IALPA in an effort to resolve outstanding issues with the pilots over the opening of the Belfast base, Aer Lingus has confirm that the threat of disruption to services this week has been lifted and the airline will be operating a full schedule.

The agreement reached at the LRC, which is subject to a ballot by IALPA members, means that the new Belfast base will open on time with staff employed on local terms and conditions. The agreement also provides a framework for the opening of future bases on local terms and conditions.

Aer Lingus have thanked the LRC and the IALPA group for their commitment and hard work in constructively bringing this issue to a successful conclusion.

The airline has also apologised for the unavoidable uncertainty this situation has caused to all of their customers. Aer Lingus now hopes to look forward to growing the company and delivering on their objectives for the benefit of all stakeholders.
