The airline also confirmed that the German pilot union has agreed to meetings on Wednesday December 20th.

On Saturday night, Ryanair offered to meet on Tuesday, but Impact refused to budge.

IMPACT says it's not in a position to call off Wednesday's planned strike action by Ryanair pilots until it meets with the company.

In a statement IMPACT said it is available to meet with management today or anytime over the weekend.

Impact, the Irish pilots' union, said it had received Ryanair's letter on Friday morning.

Ryanair has agreed to recognize pilot unions ahead of a strike threat by a number of its pilots just ahead of the busy Christmas travel weekend. Ryanair made the landmark change in its policy after unionised pilots in Ireland, Portugal, Germany, Italy, and Spain all voted for industrial action in recent weeks.

An upcoming Ryanair pilot strike has been suspended after the airline agreed to talks - much to the relief of those flying overseas for Christmas.

It is the only time airline boss Michael O'Leary has extended such an invite to union leaders in the 32 years the company has been in business.

The BALPA union said it had accepted Ryanair's offer to represent British-based pilots, but only if the TUC federation of British trade unions was allowed to attend future talks.

Ryanair, Europe's second-largest airline by passenger numbers, has been forced to cancel 20,000 flights through to March because of pilot scheduling problems stretching back to September.

Ryanair claims the threatened industrial action "is causing unnecessary concern and worry" for thousands of customers travelling home during Christmas week.
