Ryanair and the Spanish Union of Airline Pilots (SEPLA) have agreed on a 20% pay reduction restored over 4 years along with productivity improvements on rosters, flexible working patterns and annual leave to minimise Spanish Pilot job losses. 

This agreement gives Ryanair a framework to flex its operation during the COVID-19 crisis and a pathway to recovery when the business returns to normal in the years ahead.

“We welcome today’s result that an overwhelming majority (80%) of SEPLA members voted in favour of a 4-year agreement on 20% pay cuts and productivity improvements on rosters and flexible working patterns to save the maximum number of Spanish Pilot jobs,” said Ryanair’s CEO Eddie Wilson.
