  1. A Coruna (LECO)
  2. Alicante (LEAL)

Air traffic controllers have warned holidaymakers of “significant delays and cancellations” as many travelers are already impacted by today’s 24-hour strike.

Brits who have flights today should check with their airline before travelling.

Airlines such as Ryanair, easyJet and British Airways operate most routes between the UK and Spain.

The Department for Transport said they would provide minimum services, which include emergency flights.

However, only 18 to 30 percent of flights, which can be replaced by other public transport such as buses or coaches, are offered.

Strikes have already wreaked havoc for Brits traveling abroad this year.

An airport in Berlin had to cancel all flights last week due to strikes.

Around 300 flights should take off and land at Berlin Brandenburg Airport, around 35,000 passengers are affected by the cancellations.

A mass strike also took place across France last week over plans to raise the retirement age from 62 to 64.

Flights to Paris airport and the Eurostar trains were all affected by the strike.

And more UK strikes are set to take place this week.

Border Force agents have confirmed they will go on strike on February 1.

The union said it would be the “biggest public sector strike in years,” according to Travel Weekly.

It comes just days after all Flybe flights were canceled after the British carrier went into administration.
