  1. Military ‘could run air traffic’

    (UKPA) – 1 hour ago

    The Spanish government has said it will allow its military to take over control of airspace if air traffic controllers do not return to work.

    In a statement, the government called on the controllers to resume work “immediately” or “defence will assume control of airspace”.

    A mass walkout by the country’s air traffic controllers forced the country’s air traffic authority to close eight airports, including the major European hub in Madrid on the eve of a major national holiday.
