Uproar from holiday-makers as 240 Aer Lingus flights cancelled for next week

Aer Lingus has decided to cancel more than 240 flights for next week due to pilot strikes, reports RTE.

Due to an eight-hour strike this week from 5 a.m. to 1 p.m., along with a scheduled work-to-rule action starting on Wednesday, June 26, over 35,000 consumers will be affected.

Aer Lingus is reaching out to its clients to let them know how they can handle the labour disputes that take place next week.

It will impact thousands of passengers every day, reports RTE.

Passengers who made direct reservations with Aer Lingus, according to the airline, must use the “Manage Trip” feature via the website or mobile app.

The business stated that area has the most recent information and will provide a variety of possibilities, reports RTE.

Some, though, could still need to pay extra for their new flight, which they will subsequently get reimbursed by the airline.

The other choices are to ask for a return of the entire amount of the reservation or to apply for a refund voucher.

Passengers whose flights are cancelled may also submit an application for reimbursement, reports RTE.

Nevertheless, the claim to reimbursement is only applicable if the airline cancels the flight.

If a passenger modifies their reservation prior to cancellation, they are not entitled.

The Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (CCPC) states that it would provide coverage for travellers impacted by the IALPA action, reports RTE.
