Threat of industrial action at Aer Lingus recedes

Aer Lingus has said that the threat of a strike by cabin crew for 16 and 18 June, which has now been deferred, has caused “significant damage” to its trading and forward bookings several months into the future.

In a trading update in respect of its full-year 2014 operating outlook, the airline said assuming that no further strikes are threatened, it expects its 2014 operating profits (before net exceptional items) will be 10% to 20% lower than last year.

“The outcome will depend in part on the speed with which we can win back customer confidence,” Aer Lingus said. 

The airline said it welcomed the indication given last night by IMPACT, following an intervention by the Labour Court yesterday, to defer the further two days of strike action that had been called for June.

Aer Lingus said it continues to engage with the IMPACT union under the auspices of the Labour Court to resolve the row, adding that further announcements will be made as appropriate.
