The spokesperson for the Balearic government, Minister for Tourism, Iago Negueruela, today urged the management of the airlines which have announced strikes over the coming days to try to avoid stoppages and avoid disrupting travellers.

Negueruela pointed the finger at Ryanair, where the USO and Sitcpla unions are holding cabin crew stoppages until January 7.

“We hope that these industrial disputes can be resolved quickly,” he said with regard to the disputes at Ryanair, Vueling and Air Nostrum.

That said, he admitted that all industrial action is being taken across Spain so there is very little the Balearic government can actually do.
