Spain – Airport Workers’ Strike – Barcelona
Unionised Iberia (IB) ground crew is planning to stage strikes at Barcelona-El Prat Airport (BCN), July 27-28 and Aug. 3-4 over work conditions. Employees, including check-in staff and baggage handlers, will participate in the strike.
Unless averted, the labour actions could prompt flight delays and cancellations due to slowdowns in airport operations. Residual flight disruptions could extend beyond the strikes, as airlines clear cargo and passenger backlogs. Negotiations are ongoing between union leaders and the employer to resolve the labour dispute, and the actions may be called off with little warning.
Confirm flights if travelling through BCN on the affected dates. Arrive at the airport well in advance of your flight. Allow additional time for check-in and baggage retrieval
