Ryanair cancels flights in Spain, more strikes announced

STORY: Ryanair's Spain-based cabin crew plan to strike for 12 days this month to demand better working conditions, the USO and SICTPLA unions said on Saturday (July 2), raising the prospect of travel chaos as the summer tourist season gets under way.

Cabin crew will strike on July 12-15, July 18-21 and July 25-28 across the 10 Spanish airports where Ryanair operates, the unions said in a statement.

"The unions and crew of Ryanair ... demand a change of attitude from the airline," they said in a statement, calling for Ryanair to resume negotiations on working conditions.

Airline workers across Europe have been staging walkouts as the sector adapts to a resumption of travel after pandemic lockdowns.
