Spain faces 6 days of air travel delays

Dozens of flights to Spain Have been cancelled amid warnings of delays across Europe, due to french air controllers’ strike.

The country is braced for travel chaos after the strike’s scheduled start today.

No-frills carrier Ryanair has already announced on its website that 26 flights have been cancelled on June 24 and others overflying french airspace may also be affected or delayed.

British Airways confirmed it has cancelled several flights and expects “knock-on delays to some other short-haul” destinations.

It added: “We will look to use larger aircraft where we can to help affected customers on cancelled flights so they can rebook free of charge to alternative flights.

“We would urge customers to keep checking our website during the week for the very latest information about their specific flights.”

Easyjet said it has cancelled 32 non-UK flights so far, with a number of delays expected to others.

The industrial action is expected to last six days and the civil aviation body wants flight cuts to a number of cities.

The agency assured travellers by saying around three-quarters of flights would be operational.

“Flights to southern France, Spain, Portugal, Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria leaving from Paris” would be slightly less affected, with services reduced by 20%.
