The Portuguese pilots" strike scheduled for Wednesday was suspended by SPAC owing to Ryanair's decision to recognise the union "and its commitment to open negotiations with the aim of entering into a company agreement'.
It said: 'The union has agreed to meet management on Tuesday evening, but says it is available to meet sooner.
Ryanair and the Irish pilots' union look set to meet for talks next week in a bid to avert a pre-Christmas strike. However, it is unclear which day the two side will meet.
Impact, which represents Irish-based pilots, has agreed to meet the low-priced carrier's management on Tuesday evening ahead of the planned strike on Wednesday.
However, IMPACT said it needs clarifications from Ryanair on how it will handle matters into the future. 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.
"If the best way to achieve this is to talk to our pilots through a recognised union process, then we are prepared to do so, and we have written today to these unions inviting them to talks to recognise them and calling on them to cancel the threatened industrial action planned for Christmas week".
German union Vereinigung Cockpit said the onus was now on Ryanair to "prove that this announcement is serious".
Ryanair says it is now demanding the threat of strikes is lifted from its customers - already inconvenienced by the company's rota blunders this autumn that led to the travel plans of 700,000 people being scrapped.
"Union meetings planned next week and January".
The carrier admitted it had "messed up" the planning of its pilots' holidays.
