BALPA has won a major legal victory against Ryanair in an initial court battle over the punitive actions of the airline against pilots who took industrial action in 2019.
Although many consider them very dry – boring even – the international bilateral agreements which allow airlines to mount services across international borders are vital, in order to give their operations the necessary level of legal certainty. That is why BALPA has been watching closely the negotiations between the UK and EU on our future trading relationship – aviation is one of the subjects covered in the 1268 pages of the recently agreed document.
BALPA General Secretary, Brian Strutton, looks at the challenges facing all pilots during the COVID crisis.
BALPA members say goodbye to the Queen Of The Skies.
