Cheap flights to Spain

People flying to Spain holiday villas on Wednesday with Ryanair will only be allowed to take carry-on luggage.The move is in response to strike action being carried out by Spanish air traffic control (ATC) wrokers that is expected to cause widespread disruption to flights in and out of the country.
Coming a week after the airline was forced to cancel over 250 flights after French ATC workers walked out, Ryanair is calling on the European Commission to take urgent action to prevent more industrial action.Ryanair wants European governments to follow the example of former US president Ronald Reagan, who sacked ATC workers for going on strike.Action must be taken at EU level to ensure that the right to strike is removed from essential services such as ATC and competition must be introduced across Europe’s ATC providers,said Ryanair’s Stephen McNamara.This, he added, will ensure that a strike in one country is not allowed to disrupt millions of passengers’ travel plans.The industrial action in France caused around half of all flights into the country to be cancelled.
