Private air traffic controllers brought in to cover sick-leave

Sat 24th Jul 2010

Following the action of many air traffic controllers across Spain, the central government has agreed to bring in substitutes from outside the country's airline governing body, AENA.

The original plan was to draft in members of the military, but air traffic controllers claimed soldiers would not know how to do their job.

They have now said they think bringing in private air traffic controllers from outside AENA is a 'political measure' and that they should have used 'more in-house personnel' to cover the sick-leave.

Almost a third of air traffic controllers are off sick in Alicante, and some 47 were off in Barcelona last week.
