Aer Lingus passengers face possible travel disruptions from protests after pilots voted for industrial action amid a pay dispute. 

Talks between the airline, a subsidiary of IAG SA, and employees are set to resume on Thursday following the vote, state broadcaster RTE reported. 

“Aer Lingus pilots have not had a pay increase since 2019. Company is making bumper profits,” the IALPA union wrote on X ahead of the ballot. Almost 98% of members backed the industrial action, including possible withdrawal of labor, according to RTE.

The dispute would cause disruption for Aer Lingus should any action go ahead during one of the carrier’s busiest periods as holidaymakers travel abroad for the summer.
