ITAA responds to Spanish air traffic controllers strike

The Irish Travel Agents Association (ITAA) has expressed dismay at the announcement earlier today, Wednesday 27th May, that Spanish air traffic controllers have planned four days of strikes in June. The events will take place on June 8, 10, 12 and 14 for two hours each morning and two hours each afternoon across the country.

Martin Skelly, President of the ITAA said, “The timing of this Spanish air traffic strike will be a real inconvenience to Irish holiday makers at what is the beginning of the summer holiday season. Spain has consistently been the number one holiday destination for the Irish public.”

He continued, “All of our member travel agents will work closely with their leisure customers to minimise inconvenience by keeping them up to date with delays and cancellations as well as assisting them with rebooking flights and changing travel plans.”

The ITAA recommends that consumers who are concerned about the strike affecting their travel plans maintain contact with their travel agent.

The ITAA represents Ireland’s travel Industry, bringing together 100 member companies covering 161 outlets in different towns and cities throughout the Republic of Ireland. ITAA members are licensed by the Commission for Aviation Regulation and are fully bonded providing full financial protection for their customers.
