The pilots of Rynair airline from Germany have joined the strike of the pilots from Ireland, Sweden and Belgium.
400 flights have been cancelled and more than 70,000 of passengers have been affected by what is called as the biggest strike in airline’s history.
The airline says that 250 flights to and from Germany have been cancelled, along with 104 flights serving Belgium, 22 services to and from Sweden, and 20 between Ireland and Britain. Berlin Schonefeld, Gothenburg and Stockholm Skavsta have seen the majority of Ryanair services grounded.

“Despite the regrettable and unjustified strike action taking place in five of our 37 markets, over 2,000 Ryanair flights will operate as normal, carrying almost 400,000 passengers across Europe.We ask the striking unions to continue negotiations instead of calling any more unjustified strikes,” Rynair tweeted.
