Marked in red on the calendar, the next sunday july 23 For many Spaniards, it has gone from being a festive or vacation Sunday to being an obligatory Sunday. In between, the general elections that have altered the plans of millions of Spaniards.
With this situation, there are many Spaniards who wonder if a trip that has already been closed can be reason enough to justify our absence at a polling station, either as president, member or as substitute.
The bad news is that a trip, however closed it may be, it is not considered a reason of force majeure that justifies our absence at the polling station on that Sunday. Contrary to what happens with certain elements such as being over 65, suffering from a disability, being pregnant or having scheduled surgical appointments on those days.
Imprisoned persons are also exempt from the polling station, as well as victims of crimes whose convict implies restraining orders or persons who exercise confessional closing vows. They also ‘free’ vitally important essential services such as doctors, firefighters or police officers, as well as certain types of journalists.
For all these reasons, it is very frequent that they deny our requests for travel. Fortunately, a Spanish airline offers more flexibility and will allow users who have purchased a plane ticket before the polling stations are set up to change — or cancel — the seat.
This is Level, an airline low cost property of IAG that operates from Barcelona-El Prat, which will allow its users to be entitled to a refund or ticket change if the traveler so desires. It will also give away a flight to those people who have to go to the polling station, thus adapting to the electoral scenario and not embittering the holidays for the Spaniard who has to fulfill his democratic task on July 23.
The big book of airplanes and airports
Although it is a young airline, the reality is that Level offers several succulent destinations for summerflying to New York, San Francisco, Boston and Los Angeles, in addition to offering flights to Buenos Aires and Santiago de Chile, so those who want to head to America in summer already have one more reason to take off.
