Pilots at Ryanair have suspended their strike action which was due to take place on Wednesday in a dispute over collective bargaining rights.
It follows Ryanair's decision on Friday to recognise unions for the first time in its 32-year history - writes rte.ie.
Ryanair management and pilots' union IMPACT will meet for the first time tomorrow evening.
Unprecedented 24-hour stoppages by Ryanair pilots had been due to proceed in Ireland and Portugal on Wednesday, causing untold disruption to pre-Christmas travellers.
On Friday Ryanair issued its concession agreeing to recognise unions.
However, after years of acrimony and distrust, unions were reluctant to take that promise at face value, refusing to call off the strike until after they had met Ryanair management.
The companny said it could not meet union representatives until Wednesday - the day of the scheduled strike.
Now Ryanair and Irish pilots have agreed terms for a meeting tomorrow evening and the pilots have suspended their strike.
Management will meet Portuguese pilots on Thursday.
It is good news for passengers due to travel on Wednesday.
However, it is understood that if sufficient progress is not made at the Ryanair-IMPACT meeting, the union is reserving the right to reinstate its strike action.
