New flights grounded at Spanish airports due to French air traffic strike
Spanish Public Works Ministry warns Vueling it lacks enough aircraft to cover summer operations
Passengers on Vueling flights will suffer new cancellations throughout Tuesday due to an air-traffic controller strike in France.
The low-cost airline warned that it is planning to ground 40 flights – 18 departing from or arriving in Barcelona, and 22 involving the airports in Valencia, Alicante, Palma de Mallorca, Málaga, Ibiza and Seville.
The French protest will also affect other airlines, including Iberia, which is cancelling six flights that were scheduled to go over French airspace on its Madrid-London and Madrid-Paris routes.
