Delays on Iberia flights in Madrid


If you are flying into or out of Terminal 4 in Madrid these days, you are in for delays. Ever since Christmas Iberia pilots have had a “hidden” strike/slow-down. ElPais has the last of many articles on this today since it seems like the air traffic controllers are also now helping out with slowing things down. It was reported that 7 air traffic controllers also are out on sick leave as of yesterday.

On TV last night it was reported that the average delay in terminal 4 (The Iberia terminal) was 50 minutes. Some people were waiting for hours and some less.

There seems to be no/little delays for other airlines that flies out of the other terminals on Barajas airport (Madrid).

All this makes travels to and from Santiago de Compotela, or other destinations along the Camino de Santiago de Compostela more difficult.
