Only a “tiny minority” of staff are involved in the action, Ryanair said in a statement on Tuesday, adding that the scrapped services amount to 8 percent of the planned schedule and will affect about 30,000 customers.

Ryanair said it has made “significant progress” in talks over recent weeks, culminating in accords with some staff in Ireland, the U.K., Italy and Germany.
