Iberia Express cancels four flights for this Saturday on its seventh day of strike

Iberia Express canceled this Saturday four flights for the cabin crew strike summoned by USO. They are round trips connecting Madrid with Mallorca and Gran Canaria.

The airline indicated, in a statement, that 100% of the passengers affected by these cancellations already have been relocated to other flights Iberia Express, Iberia or other companies or alternative means of transport. These are connecting round trips from Madrid with Mallorca and Gran Canaria.

Passengers have been relocated

In addition, the company has activated a flexibility plan for all customers with a flight until September 6 so that they can request a change of dates for the same route or a voucher with the total amount of the reservation. In addition, users can check the status of their flight at any time on the website https://blog.iberiaexpress.com/informacion-huelga/.

Likewise, Iberia Express has “deeply” regretted the inconvenience that the strike is causing passengers and has apologized for it. This Friday, September 2, the strike day resulted in five delays and four cancellations, according to the unions.

The cancellations took place in a preventive way and already at the beginning of the morning the company reported that it would operate 93 flights throughout the day. These flights passed “without incidents related to the strike called by the USO union”, transporting a total of 13,800 passengers, according to the airline.

During Friday, four flights were canceled and there were five delays

In addition, it assured that the day closed with a punctuality of 91.4%, having registered eight flights with delays of more than 15 minutes “caused by operational reasons totally unrelated to the USO strike.”

After Iberia Express and USO met last Friday without reaching an agreement, the company has asked the union to call off the strikes and return to the negotiating table, “which it should never have left.”

Likewise, he has asked him “to make a definitive commitment to re-establishing social peace through direct and sincere dialogue.”
