Ryanair is called before the Commercial Court of Brussels by BATA (Belgian Air Transport Association) which includes major companies in Belgium (Brussels Airlines, Jetairfly, Thomas Cook Belgium). BATA accuses the low cost airline of unfair competition. It all started with the arrival of the low cost airline at the airport of Brussels -National in February 2014. BATA’s position is that the cheap carrier, while working in Belgium and engaging people there, has to respect the applicable labour and working conditions. This includes the indexation of wages that keeps salary increases in line with price rises.
