Vueling cancel over 200 flights to and from Barcelona airport

Vueling have cancelled more than 200 flights either arriving to Barcelona airport or departing from it over this weekend.

The company was forced to cancel the flights due to the striking Iberia ground staff at the airport, with the strikes in effect from Saturday until Tuesday.

The airline has announced the cancellations ahead of time to try to ’cause the least disruption’ to its customers. Vueling regrets the cancellations and says the strike is ‘totally out of the hands’ of the airline.
