AIR passengers in Spain could be hit by devasting delays after the CC.OO., UGT and USE unions announced a round of strikes, starting from 15 September, across all airports operated by Aena.
In Spain Aena manages 46 airports and two heliports and saw 230.2 million passengers pass through its airports in 2016. It made a net profit of €1,164 million in the same year.
The 25 days of 24-hour work stoppages announced by the unions would run from September 15 to December 30.
The full list of planned strikes is as follows:
Workers’ representatives in the Aena group have threatened strikes since May if their repeated demands on salary and their calls for an employment plan were not answered before mid-August.
If the strikes go ahead they will massively affect Spain’s busy national bank holidays in October, November and December including the Christmas period.
