Ryanair cabin crew based in Belgium will be on strike on January 7 and 8. The list of cancelled flights can be found on the Charleroi Airport website.
Only flights departing from Charleroi (BSCA) and operated by cabin crew based in Belgium will be affected. These include planes to Tenerife, Dublin, Malaga, Lisbon and Marrakech. Flights from Brussels Airport are all operated by aircraft based out of Belgium and are not affected by the strike.
On the other hand, the USO and Sitcpla unions, which represent the airline’s cabin crew in Spain, are continuing the strike until 7 January 2023. The strike consists of 24-hour days of stoppages, from Monday to Thursday, on a weekly basis, so from Monday 2 January to Thursday 5 January will be affected by this call by the Irish airline.
Vueling continues to strike every Friday, Sunday and Monday until 31 January 2023, as well as on 5 January.
The airports affected by the Vueling strike are those with destination or origin in Alicante, Barcelona, Bilbao, Gran Canaria, Palma de Mallorca, Malaga, Santiago de Compostela, Lanzarote, Seville, Tenerife North and Valencia.
Travelers are advised to confirm the status of their flights prior to departure for the airport and to contact the airline for more information.
It is advisable to plan your arrival at Spanish airports in advance due to the high influx of passengers at this time of year. There have been delays due to queues of more than 30 minutes to pass through the security controls that give access to the terminals, especially T4 at Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas Airport.
