Spain flights chaos as strike takes hold
29 September 2010 @ 15:52

Air passengers are facing severe disruption on flights to and from Spain because of a 24-hour general strike by Spanish workers.

Budget airline Ryanair scrapped most of its flights to Spain and all of its internal ones in the country, while easyJet cancelled around half its Spanish flights.

British Airways also warned of delays and changes to its Spanish schedule due to the industrial action, which finishes at midnight on Wednesday.

EasyJet said it had written some days ago to passengers planning on flying to Spain, offering them the opportunity to change their travel plans.

Ryanair, which last week was forced to axe 250 flights due to strike action by French air traffic controllers, called on EU leaders to act against those disrupting flights.

The disruption will also affect Spanish islands such as Majorca, Ibiza and the Canary Islands.
