It was business as usual at Palma airport yesterday with the Iberia pilots' strike, which caused chaos on the mainland, having no effect at all on Iberia's domestic flights to and from Majorca. Palma airport authority reported that there were delays on just five morning flights to Madrid and Barcelona, but none were longer than 60 minutes. In stark contrast to the travel disruption caused at airports across Spain, with Iberia forced to cancel at least 30 per cent of their domestic flights, none of Iberia's flight programmes for Palma yesterday afternoon were hit by the 24-hour strike. The only damage caused by the first phase of a summer of industrial action was a one hour delay on a flight bound for Madrid and 30 minutes on a Barcelona-bound flight. According to Palma airport bosses, the main reasons for the strike having next to no consequences was that minimum services were being operated in Majorca and that it was relatively quiet days at Palma airport.
