Ryanair has agreed pay increases and new rostering arrangements for cabin crew across the airline, as well as new pilot agreements at those Ryanair bases where existing long-term pay deals were due to expire in April.

The airline says that cabin crew at all Ryanair bases have voted to accept a four-year agreement which, from 1st April 2013, will deliver average pay increases of 10% over four years, and increases in supervisory and other allowances.

The company has also announced new five-year agreements with pilots at its Alicante, Bristol, Cork, East Midlands, Luton and Shannon bases which, from 1st April 2013, will deliver pay increases of "up to 10%" over five years, and increases in pensions and allowances.

Ryanair says its pilots at the Manchester and Valencia bases have also negotiated a five day on, four day off roster prior to the conclusion of their existing five-year agreement, and says it looks forward to negotiating new agreements at its other bases as and when existing five year agreements finish over the next three years.
