Ryanair cabin crew continue their strike day on Tuesday, after the workers, USO and Sitcpla announced a series of strikes from Monday to Thursday that will last until January 2023.
Until 9:00 a.m., airport activity has been affected with 4 canceled flights, according to USO data. Specifically, there are two round trip routes between Madrid and Santiago de Compostela and two more between Fuerteventura and Santiago de Compostela.
Regarding delays, Barcelona airport has been the most affected with 7 departure or arrival flights. Madrid, Palma de Mallorca and Malaga registered 6 delays respectively; Alicante, 4 and only one arrival in Ibiza. This Monday was one of the most affected since the beginning of the protests, which will last until January, with almost 250 canceled flights, coinciding with one of the busiest summer times.
The strikes affect the ten Spanish bases where Ryanair operates (Madrid, Malaga, Seville, Alicante, Valencia, Barcelona, Gerona, Santiago de Compostela, Ibiza and Palma de Mallorca).
However, the labor claims of the cabin crew, who have been on strike for more than a month, have not altered Ryanair's economic forecasts for the year to date. The low cost airline has managed to recover 98% with almost as many travelers as in 2019. Michael O'Leary, CEO of the group, assures that inflation and the loss of purchasing power will attract more users to the airline.
