Airlines have cancelled over 760 flights tomorrow at Spanish airports because of the general strike.

Iberia has cancelled 222 flights and its subsidiaries Air Nostrum and Iberia Express, 200 and 24 respectively.

In addition, Ryanair have cancelled 44 flights, Air Europe 30, Easyjet 28, 189 Vueling, Air Berlin 6 and Air France about 20.

As well these these confirmed cancellations, other airlines operating out of Spanish airports, who have not yet offered details, may also have plans to cancel flights.

Under the minimum services agreement reached by the CCOO and UGT unions with the Ministry of Public Works on air transport, 10% of mainland flights will operate, 50% of flights linking the peninsula with the Canaries, Balearics, Ceuta and Melilla, 20% of flights to destinations in the European Economic Area and 40% of all other international routes.

With regard to airport ground services (handling) half the staff are required to report to Ceuta and Melilla airports, 25% in major mainland airports and 10% in the rest.

As for airport personnel, the decree provides that minimum services are to be provided, meaning 1,112 of 5,162 workers will have to work tomorrow, representing 21%.

Spanish airports have a workforce of 8,522 employees assigned to airport operator Aena, of which 4,791 work shifts and the rest a normal 9-5 day.

The agreement between the ministry and the unions requires 1,131 of the usual 2,500 people working in air-traffic control towers and centres to work tomorrow.
