Belgium deputy Prime Minister Kris Peeters said that his Government will file a law suit against Ryanair for its “lack of professional conscience” in cancelling flights and leaving passengers stranded.
Ryanair has been cancelling thousands of flights due to an error over pilot holiday rosters.
The deputy prime ministry of Belgium said on wednesday that he will take action against Ryanair in Belgium’s Commercial Court. The minister accused Ryanair of a series of failings, including only communicating with Belgium’s French and Dutch-speaking customers in English and failing to notify them of their rights.
Similar critics were made by the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) last week to which Ryanair said it “ complies fully with all EU261 legislation and is taking all necessary steps to re-accommodate affected customers”.
Ryanair has been under heavy fire since it announced last month that 2,100 flights would be cancelled in September and October due to an error over pilot holiday rosters.
