RYANAIR is facing legal action from Britain's aviation regulator after the carrier refused to pay compensation to customers whose flights were disrupted by strikes during the summer, reports Bloomberg.

Under European Commission rules, Ryanair should have compensated customers, the Civil Aviation Authority said, adding that it warned the carrier at the time that the events didn't amount to extraordinary circumstances that would have exempted it from payouts.



While the C appealed to Ryanair to change its mind, a spokesman said the next move will be to take the airline to court to ensure its compliance.



The regulator won a recent action against Emirates after the Gulf giant resisted paying compensation for onward flights from Dubai, he said.



Ryanair said in an email that courts in Germany, Spain and Italy have already ruled that compensation doesn't apply in the event of strikes, and that it expects the C and British courts to 'follow this precedent.'
