MALLORCA TODAY - Easter airports' strike threat

The privatisation of AENA, the national airports agency, is getting under way, the Spanish Government having created a new company (Aena Aeropuertos) into which will pass control of airports. The process of privatisation will start with control towers at 13 airports this April. The rest of the process, which covers 47 airports, will be effected in 2012.

The unions are planning demonstrations today against privatisation and are also threatening a strike over Easter, negotiations seemingly having broken down with the transport ministry.
