A warning of flight delays has been issued ahead of the latest planned strike by Spanish air traffic controllers this weekend.

Airlines have been notified of a second wave of industrial action for three hours each day on Saturday and Sunday – a peak weekend for summer holiday travel.

This follows action by controllers in Spain on July 11 and 12.

Walkouts are planned between 10am and 1pm on Saturday and 5pm and 8pm on Sunday in an ongoing dispute which saw stoppages over four days in June.

EasyJet said: “We plan to operate our normal schedule and like all airlines flying to and from Spain, we expect to be impacted by moderate delays during this period as a result of the strike.

“We recommend that all customers flying to or from Spain on those dates check the status of their flight on our Flight Tracker page before going to the airport.”

Flybe said: “Flybe will, as always, do everything possible to minimise any disruption resulting from this industrial action and would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience that may be experienced by passengers through these circumstances that are entirely beyond our control.”

However, Monarch said: “Whilst we are not expecting this disruption to affect Monarch flights we would like to advise customers to check in on line where they can or arrive at the airport in plenty of time to check in for flights.”
