Pilots at Ryanair’s biggest base at Stanstead in London have voted to reject a pay deal offered by the company in a bid to end the flights cancellation crisis gripping the company.

The offer, including pay increases of up to £22,000, were rejected by a margin of 60pc to 40pc, Independent.ie understands.

In a statement, Ryanair said it was “surprised” by the outcome of the secret ballot. The airline said pilots at more than 10 of its European basis have voted in favour of new pay offers.
