Ryanair Holdings PLC said on Thursday that all 15 of its U.K pilot bases have voted in a secret ballot to accept pay increases of 20%, which will be included in the January payroll.

The pay increases bring Ryanair's pilot pay in the U.K. to 20% more than competitor operators including Norwegian and Jet2, Ryanair said.

The budget airline said that the majority of its pilots in Ireland have already agreed to pay increases, including a majority of pilots in Dublin who are contractors or new joiners.

Ryanair said it was disappointed that the remaining 35% of Dublin pilots have not voted on the pay increase, adding that those pilots would now not be paid more money in January.
