He said Ryanair could base up to 50 planes in France and that the airline had been in touch with pilot unions in France and Denmark already.

"Ryanair is moving to recognise unions, starting this week with meetings with Irish, German and Portuguese pilot unions", the company said.

"As Ryanair's statement of Friday 15 Dec made clear, Ryanair is moving to recognise unions, starting this week with meetings with Irish, German and Portuguese pilot unions".

Following the meeting, Impact spokesman Bernard Harbour said it needed more than a promise from Ryanair about union recognition, adding the union wanted a "signature on a piece of paper".

"We think this is disappointing given all that's been said in the media over the last five days by the company".

"As soon as Ryanair proposes a concrete and binding date in January, we will of course take them up on it", UFO union board member Nicoley Baublies said in a statement on Wednesday.

Last Friday Ryanair surprised customers and staff when it agreed to recognise unions for the first time in its 32 year history.

The union have warned that their strike action in December is not cancelled, only suspended.

.

The decision marks a radical departure in policy for the airline, with Mr O'Leary himself having been vocal in his past criticism of unions.

He faced pressure after the airline was forced to cancel thousands of flights over botched holiday scheduling.

Hinting at a conspiracy by its competitors, Ryanair initially insisted it had no recruitment issues as it pursued the goal of transporting 200-million passengers annually by 2024.

While management acknowledged the episode had "damaged" its image, O'Leary offered pilots some improvements in pay and conditions, including bonuses to those who would waive part of their vacation.

Pilots in Italy, Germany and Ireland had also threatened similar action for this week.
