Spanish Air Traffic Controllers Threaten With Strike

This Monday will see the start of a series of strikes by Spanish air traffic controllers.

For many Britons and other holidaymakers, the strikes will likely lead to chaos and considerable delays.

Tourist organisations are booking emergency hotel rooms expecting that many travellers may be left stranded.

This is the first strike by Spanish air travel controllers in 26 years. The strikes will each last two hours with the first one starting this Monday morning from 10 AM until noon. More strikes are planned for the coming days.

The strike will likely affect many British tourists that are enjoying an early summer holiday. The popular holiday island of Majorca alone sees hundred thousand passengers a day.
