Ryanair will cancel 190 of its 2,400 scheduled flights on Friday due to a strike by cabin crews in Belgium, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal and Spain, the airline said on Tuesday.

The no-frills carrier said in a statement that 30,000 customers were likely to be affected, calling the strike "unnecessary".

In a statement the company said that "all affected customers have received emails and text SMS messages this morning advising them of their flight cancellation 3 days in advance."

It continued: "Ryanair sincerely regrets these unnecessary customer disruptions, which have been called by unions at the behest of competitor airline employees".

The budget airline added that the cancellations represented only 8 percent of its scheduled flights that day.

You may be entitled to compensation, know your rights.
