Flight Disruptions in Portugal

Passengers on flights to Portugal may face disruption in the coming weeks due to industrial action by air traffic controllers. Following two-hour walkouts last Thursday and Friday, further walkouts are planned for 19th, 20th, and 26th April between 07.00 and 09.00.

SATA pilots are also threatening strike action on 27th – 29th April, while in Spain the Monday and Friday strikes by Iberia pilots are set to continue up to 20th July, and airport workers at Madrid-Barajas Airport may strike on 30th April, 2nd and 3rd May.

The Iberia Peninsula does not look like being a happy air space over the next few weeks!
