THE 50th French Air Traffic Control strike on Thursday June 2 affected a number of airlines flying into and out of Spain, with Ryanair having to cancel no less than 75 flights.

Certain flights either into or out of Alicante, Barcelona, Ibiza, Madrid, Malaga, Palma and Valencia were affected and, as aircraft fly from France to Spain and then return to the UK, the problem was made worse by a ‘knock on effect’.

The good news for travellers, however, is that strikes planned for the coming weekend have been cancelled, although time will tell whether the controllers are waiting to hit passengers attending the European football championships which start in just a few days’ time.
