The Government of Great Britain, through the Foreign Office, has a permanent notice on its website for its citizens wishing to travel abroad. In the case of Spain, the absence of risk was just modified by a warning that those traveling to our country could face chaos due to a combination of Ryanair and Easyjet strikes (Easyjet: nine days strike at its bases in Spain).
It is unusual to publish this type of warning in the event of strikes, although there are risks to the safety and well-being of people.
The memo says that “the strikes planned for the current month of July may cause disruptions to Ryanair and Easyjet flights to and from Spain. If you think they may be affected, check with your airline” (Ryanair’s Chaos: 12 new strike days in July).
For those who aren’t aware, Easyjet crews have already gone on strike between July 1 and 3, without causing damage or at least without being as noticeable as the collapse at British airports themselves.
In any case, the press pays special attention to travelers heading to Mallorca, Malaga and Barcelona, where Easyjet has bases.
Ryanair, although the strikes could affect ten bases (Madrid, Malaga, Barcelona, Seville, Alicante, Valencia, Santiago, Girona, Palma and Ibiza) has not announced the cancellation.
