Vueling, the Spanish low-cost carrier, owned by the IAG group, remains in the grip of strike action.

On Tuesday, November 1, the company was forced to cancel 54 flights to reduce the impact of the protests called by the cabin crew union, Stavla. This strike is going to last for several days yet.

These stoppages come after Spanish rail network Renfe workers also called a strike. A last-minute agreement by the unions and management resulted in the strikes being cancelled.

In order to lessen the impact on their travel plans, all passengers impacted by aircraft cancellations are informed in advance and given a variety of options. International flights have also been affected, but by a lesser amount (7%). 

Considering that 90% of the affected passengers have so far found a suitable resolution, Vueling guarantees that they have been given the choice of taking another trip, another alternative mode of transportation (in the case of internal flights), or a refund of their ticket.

Stoppages will be repeated every Monday, Friday, and Sunday until January 31, 2023, as well as on December 6, 8, 24, and 31 and January 5, keys in the December bridges and the Christmas holidays.
