Airlines cancel Portugal flights ahead of general strike

Airlines have cancelled flights to Faro and Lisbon ahead of tomorrow’s general strike in Portugal. Air traffic controllers will take industrial action as part of the strike, meaning that a minimum service will operate. As a result, British Airways, Ryanair and easyJet have all announced that they have cancelled flights. TAP Portugal has also called off the majority of its mid-haul schedule. “Due to the general strike in Portugal on November 24 and given that air traffic control will only ensure operation of flights defined as minimum services, TAP hereby informs its customers that it will be forced to cancel the majority of its medium-haul flights on this date,” the airline said in a statement.”However, TAP envisages operating most of its long-haul flights, although some will be subject to schedule changes. TAP is currently working on this revised scheduling.”
