Madrid.—Spanish airline Iberia is planning to cancel a total of 238 of its scheduled flights during two days of industrial action by pilots union “Sepla” on 24th and 29th February .

Other smaller unions representing ground staff and cabin crew, confirmed Iberia yesterday, will also be supporting the strikes.
The stoppages have been triggered by pilots' fury at Iberia's failure to consult them over the setting up of a new low cost airline, Iberia Express.
Next Friday, 24th February, Iberia will cancel 34% of its scheduled flights, 16 of them between Barajas airport in Madrid and El Prat in Barcelona, and on the 29th, 38% of all flights will not take place.

As part of its agreement with Central Government, unions have given assurances that all flights between the Balearics and the mainland will take off as planned.
