Ryanair pilots accept pay rise of up to 20%
Ryanair pilots have voted to accept a pay offer, giving them increases of up to 20%.
The airline said the pay of its pilots in the UK was now 20% more than those in other companies flying 737 Boeing aircraft.
The increase will be paid next week after being accepted in bases including Stansted.
Most Ryanair pilots in Ireland have already agreed to the new rates, although around a third of staff in Dublin have not yet voted, which Ryanair said was "disappointing".
Talks with pilots' representatives in Dublin were progressing slowly, said Ryanair, adding: "Ryanair will continue to communicate with the 35% of Dublin pilots who have yet to accept this substantial pay increase which, if accepted, can be included in the February payroll and will take them to 20% higher pay than Norwegian 737 pilots in Dublin."
