aviation: ATC strikes: Ryanair submits petition to EU Commission



On Wednesday, May 31, 2023, the low-cost airline Ryanair handed over a petition signed by 1.1 million people to the EU Commission with the aim of at least allowing overflights during ATC strikes. The head of the company, Michael O’Leary, registered specifically for this in Brussels.

Specifically, the petition is directed against the practice in France, whose minimum standards during the ATC strike provide for domestic flights to be given priority. International flights that only fly over the country are often unable to use the airspace. Ryanair criticized that in the first five months alone there were ten times as many strike days as in the previous year.

Ryanair is calling on the EU Commission, led by Ursula von der Leyen, to heed the petition of more than 1.1 million EU passengers and demand that all EU states protect overflights during the air traffic control strike .” “It is already the case in Greece, Italy and Spain,” the carrier said.
