SEPLA (The Spanish Pilots Union) within Iberia will give the minimum service required by the Spanish Ministry of Public Works, which includes maintaining a connection with the Balearics, during the pilots strike called by this union which will run from midnight on July 9 to midnight on July 16. The branch of SEPLA within Iberia said that, in spite of considering the essential services “excessive”, they will comply with them. Last Friday, June 30, the Ministry of Public Works revealed the Ministerial Order detailing the essential services which Iberia must maintain. This said that all services with departure times before the strike period but with arrival times during the strike period should be completed. Also, the Ministry has laid down that all flights with departure times during the strike period whose arrival time would be after the strike period should also be completed. It also laid down that all aerial services between mainland airports and the Canary Islands and the Balearics, and between the islands in each archipelago and between the mainland and Melilla must be maintained. Fifty percent of services between mainland towns, whose alternative method of public transport is a journey of 500 kilometres or more, or with a time of more than five hours, will be continued. The Ministry has said that 25 percent of services between mainland towns, whose alternative method of public transport is a journey of less than 500 kilometres or a time of less than five hours, must be continued. Between Spanish and foreign towns where the time for the flight is more than six hours, a daily return service must be provided.
