Lanzarote is waiting for the development of the air traffic controllers’ strike scheduled for today Monday and for the following Mondays in February, in protest at the failure of the negotiations to sign a new collective agreement.


The strike affects the control towers that have been privatized and managed by the companies Saerco and Ferronats at the island airports of Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, La Palma and El Hierro.


The minimum services established by the Ministry of Transport include that flights between islands remain at 69 percent in the case of Lanzarote, while only 51 percent of flights between César Manrique airport and the Peninsula have been secured.


Facing tomorrow’s day, Monday, the controllers have warned, through social networks, that users consult their flight schedules with the airlines to see if they are affected by the work stoppage or fall within the minimum established services .


The strike is called by the Usca and CC.OO unions and will take place on Monday, January 30 and February 6, 13, 20 and 27 in the towers of A Coruña, Alicante-Elche, Castellón, Cuatro Vientos, El Hierro, Fuerteventura , Ibiza, Jerez, Lanzarote, La Palma, Lleida, Murcia, Sabadell, Seville, Valencia and Vigo, which are the airports that have privatized this service.
