Strike action threatens Easter flights in and out of Portugal

A specially-targeted five-day strike by airport security staff begins tomorrow at Portugal’s national airports, threatening passenger delays throughout the Easter period.

ANA airports authority recommends that people travelling between April 13 and 17 “check instructions transmitted by their airlines” and act accordingly.

The strike – in effect for only two hours each day – has been called by workers employed by Securitas and Prosegur.

Media reports recommend passengers pack luggage for the hold, only – avoiding hand-held baggage.
