Air space over Madrid, the Canary Islands and Majorca is closed due to the labour conflict of the Spanish air traffic controllers. According to the information provided by Eurocotrol, it is expected that the air operations in these airports will be cancelled until 01:00 a.m. Spanish Mainland time, therefore customers are kindly requested not to go to the airports in these regions.
Iberia will update the information on its web site (www.iberia.com) and the social media. It will also launch a flight recovery plan once the air space has been opened. Long haul flights departing in the early morning will have priority.
Customers with a flight ticket to the affected destinations are kindly requested not to go to the airport and to contact their travel agencies or Iberia’s Call Centers. Passengers can also check their flight status on www.iberia.com
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
