Taxi-driver associations opposed to the new bus services from the airport to tourist resorts have announced a series of actions that will start on 6 March and extend until Easter.

A 24-hour strike on 6 March had previously been announced; this will be from 06.00 on 6 March. To coincide with this, there will be another caravan of taxis from Son Moix to the government HQ in Passeig Sagrera.

There will be four three-hour stoppages between 07.30 and 10.30 on 13, 20, 27 March and 3 April. On 17 March from 11.00 to 14.00 there will be a demonstration outside the Consulat de la Mar.

There will be other 24-hour strikes on 13 April (the Thursday of Holy Week) from 14.00 and from 06.00 on Easter Sunday (16 April).

In addition, there will be no night service from 22.00 on 14 April to 06.00 on 15 April.
