Unions representing air traffic controllers, baggage handlers and aircraft maintenance staff in Portugal have announced that their members will be participating in a 24-hour general strike scheduled to take place on 24th November. If the planned strike action goes ahead, it may affect your travel plans. Be prepared for delays and keep in touch with your airline or tour operator for advice on the options available to you.
Please refer to the FCO link on the information sheet for more information.
Those travelling officially should have now received an email with the contingency plan should the strike affect flights departing from Porto. All official travel is now sold out.22 Nov 2010
