Extra flights to Malaga for passengers affected by strike action

Ryanair is operating additional flights to Malaga from London Stansted today (September 30th).

Ryanair is operating additional flights to Malaga from London Stansted today (September 30th) to help passengers affected by the air traffic control strikes in Spain.

Customers using the airline who have been affected by cancelled flights can transfer to one of the additional services free of charge.

Stephen McNamara, Ryanair’s head of communications, said passengers affected by the strike should "switch to these flights as soon as possible".

Speaking yesterday, he said: "Ryanair passengers who had intended to travel from London to Malaga and from Malaga to London today can now switch to our extra flights which will operate from London Stansted and Malaga tomorrow."

Ryanair was forced to cancel most of its cheap flights to Spain because of yesterday’s strike action, although the country’s national aviation authority said that approximately 70 percent of air traffic controllers were able to show up for work.

Meanwhile, on September 14th, Ryanair accommodated its 100 millionth passengers on its routes to and from Italy.
