The Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda (Mitma) has communicated to Easyjet, Aena, Enaire and the union Sepla, the minimum services corresponding to the strike call of Easyjet Technical Flight Attendants (TTV) for the next 12, 13, 14, 19, 20, 21, 27, 28 and 29 August 2022.

These essential services aim to reconcile the general interest of citizens, and in particular their mobility needs, with the right to strike of this group of workers.

The resolution of the minimum services established has also been published on the Mitma website,

Considering that according to the flight schedule provided by Easyjet, all the services scheduled for the days of strike are international flights (there are no flights between national airports nor with non-peninsular Spanish territories), the minimum services decreed are those resulting from applying the following percentages of protection to public transport air services operated by the airline Easyjet with origin or destination in the airports of Malaga, Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca and Menorca:

For Barcelona and Menorca airports: 61%.
For Malaga airport: 60%.
For Palma de Mallorca airport: 57%.
In addition, technical positioning operations and other operations such as the situation of crews necessary for the effective performance of air transport services are considered essential, those operating in the periods between strike days and those after the end of the strike, and also those flights whose scheduled departure time was prior to the start of the strike and whose scheduled arrival is during the strike period, are protected.

Workers who have a permanent base at one of the work centres where the strike is called shall be considered as workers legally called to strike, regardless of the place where they spend the night on the days when the strike is called.

With regard to the list of specific flights affected by these minimum services, it is up to the airline Easyjet to establish the flights subject to the percentages of the resolution of minimum services described above, for which they must adopt the necessary measures to ensure that they are provided, safeguarding at all times the safety of all operations.
