Spanish airport strike looking for Easter

With the announcement of planned strikes by Spanish airport workers thousands of British holiday travelers may face Easter disruptions with RyanAir stating that hundreds of flights would need to be canceled of the strike planned for 22 days goes ahead and starts just before the April 20 break for Easter.
A possibility of the strike continuing through the summer and causing problems for thousands of British families is a big fear and this could go hand in hand with possible action by cabin crews from British Airways that are voting on a possible strike by the trade union Unite.
The 12,500 ground staff in Spain are upset about the possible privatization of the state owned airport operator and the strike could shut down all the airports in the country including those in the Canary Islands.
Over 28 million people flew to Spain making it the top holiday spot for Britons in 2010 according to data supplied by the Civil Aviation Authority.

Those airlines most affected by a strike will be the budget airlines and Spain is a large destination for the likes of bmibaby, easyJet and Ryanair, all low cost budget airlines. There is a call on to the EU and Spanish government to prevent the stoppages.
