SPANISH air traffic controllers remain on a strike footing over proposed pay cuts by the government and if they go ahead with threatened industrial action, tens of thousands of British holiday makers coming to Majorca and Spain for Easter could face travel disruption.

It was recently revealed that Spanish air traffic controllers, once they have put in for overtime, are the highest paid in Europe and the government responded by announcing pay cuts of nearly 40 percent. Talks between the unions and the Spanish Airport and Air Traffic Control Authority (AENA) broke down earlier this week and the Easter strikes appear to be going ahead.

According to the Association of British Travel Agents, ABTA, Spain is the most popular destination for British travellers this Easter.
