MORE Ryanair strikes planned across Spain this month – here are the full list of dates | The Sun

RYANAIR cabin crew have announced a fresh wave of strikes across Spain this month.

Crew will walk out for another 12 days this month, affecting 10 airports across the country including Malaga, Alicante and Ibiza.

The low-cost airline was forced to cancel 10 flights across Spain on Saturday due to strike action.

And Ryanair crew will now walk out from July 12 to 15, as well as July 18 to 21 and July 25 to 28.

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

The strike action, announced by the USO and SICTPLA unions, was due to pay disagreements.

Ryanair boss says flights are too CHEAP & warns costs will rise for next 5 years

A Ryanair spokesperson said they expected "minimal disruptions" during the strikes.

They added: "Less than 1 per cent of Ryanair’s flights have been affected in the past month by recent minor and poorly supported cabin crew strikes called by unions who are either not recognised by or who represent tiny numbers of Ryanair crews.

"Air Traffic Control (ATC) and airport staff shortages across Europe, which are beyond Ryanair’s control may however cause some minor disruption and any passengers whose flights are disrupted by ATC staff shortages will be notified of their entitlements by email/SMS."

Ryanair are not the only airline to be facing walkouts this summer.
