Iberia Express and the USO union representing striking cabin crew failed to reach an agreement over pay on Tuesday, meaning that strike action will continue until September 6th.

Negotiations have stalled after the airline’s refusal to raise the salaries of its crew members in line with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) of 2021 (6.5 percent) and to adapt their pay to the ongoing cost of living shock. For many staff, pay has been frozen since 2015.

The Local has broken down all the flights set to be cancelled, although with negotiations ongoing the situation is fluid and it is always recommended to check with the airline.

On Wednesday, August 31, 4 flights (round trips) have been cancelled on the Madrid-Palma and Madrid-Gran Canaria routes.

Passengers with tickets for these flights have already been given other flights or alternative arrangements made.

On Thursday, September 1, so far 6 flights have been cancelled on the Madrid-Palma, Madrid-Gran Canaria and Madrid-Santiago de Compostela routes. Of the 743 passengers affected, 730 have found other flights and 13 have opted for a refund or redeemable travel voucher.

For Friday, September 2nd, 4 flights (round trips) have already been cancelled on the Madrid-Gran Canaria and Madrid-Tenerife routes. Passengers are being contacted today in order to make different arrangements.

For the remaining days of the walkout, Saturday September 3rd until September 6th, Iberia Express is still considering which flights to cancel in order to soften the impact on passengers, but a fuller list of cancelled flights has been released by the USO union representing the striking cabin crew. We have outlined it below.

If you’ve booked a flight with Iberia Express during these days, and your flight appears on the following list, it is not protected by the Spanish government’s decree on ‘minimum services’ and could be cancelled.

If your flight is not on the list, it is protected by the minimum services degree and should operate normally. 

As always, it is advisable to check directly with airline as the situation is very changeable.

The minimum services decree aims to maintain between 32 percent and 85 percent of the total scheduled flights. The main airports affected are Madrid to Palma de Mallorca, Gran Canaria, Santiago de Compostela, Seville, Malaga and Tenerife North.

Unions claim as many as 17,000 passengers will be affected by walkouts.

Iberia will reimburse those affected by cancellations, and for flights that go ahead as normal, it will allow date changes at no extra cost. It is also possible to change your route if your flight is cancelled if the distance from your initial destination does not exceed 250 miles (402 kilometres).

The cancelled flights are below:
