Spanish Air Traffic Controllers May Strike

August 3, 2010 By: Jena Tesse Fox

Uh-oh. The Guardian is estimating that "hundreds of thousands" of tourists may face holiday chaos this summer after Spain's air traffic controllers tonight voted to strike.

The walkout is expected to begin on August 18, a spokesman for the air traffic controllers said this afternoon, and will continue for up to three days.

A final decision on exactly when the strike will start, and how long it will last, will be taken over the coming days, Spanish media reported.

It will be the first time air traffic controllers in Europe's most popular tourist destination have gone on strike, and the fallout looks set to be severe.

A three-day strike would affect 2 million airline passengers during the peak week for summer tourism in Spain.
