The strikes begin today and will last until Saturday, July 2.

This will affect flights at ten bases across Spain – Madrid, Malaga, Barcelona, Alicante, Sevilla, Palma, Valencia, Girona, Santiago de Compostela and Ibiza.

The strikes come as part of continued action from staff at the airline, after a walkout was staged in five countries last weekend.

Holidaymakers will be informed if their flights are cancelled this weekend, although last week’s strike affected “less than 2 per cent of 9,000 flights” according to Ryanair.

Ryanair and EasyJet strikes planned this week across Spain

A spokesperson from the airline told the Sun Online that they still expect to operate a full schedule this weekend and that the strikes were “poorly supported”.

They said: “Ryanair expects to operate a full schedule to/from Spain this weekend (30thJune, 1st July & 2nd July) despite minor and poorly supported labour strikes in Spain.”

Ryanair are not the only airline to be facing walkouts this weekend, with easyJet on-board crew in Spain set for nine days of action in July, starting from this week between July 1 and 3.

The strikes will see three 72-hour stoppages at fortnightly intervals, with hundreds of crew stopping work at easyJet’s bases in Barcelona, Málaga and Palma.

Workers will walk out in three phases across the month – between the 1st and 3rd, between the 15th and 17th, and finally between the 29th and 31st.

An easyJet spokesperson said: “We are extremely disappointed with this action as we have made considerable progress towards a new collective labour agreement and so would like to continue a constructive dialogue with them.

“Should the industrial action go ahead there could be some disruption to our flying programme to and from Málaga, Palma and Barcelona during the strike period.

“However, at this stage, easyJet plans to operate its full schedule and we would like to reassure customers that we will do everything possible to minimise any disruption.”
