MORE strikes are being planned by Ryanair and easyJet crew this week, causing more travel disruption.

Ryanair staff have already gone on strike this month, after staff walked out last week.

However, there are more plans for strikes this month.

A three-day Ryanair walkout is planned in Spain this week running from June 30 until July 2.

This will affect flights at ten bases across Spain – Madrid, Malaga, Barcelona, Alicante, Sevilla, Palma, Valencia, Girona, Santiago de Compostela and Ibiza.

And easyJet on-board crew in Spain will ALSO strike for nine days in July, starting from this week between July 1 and 3rd.
