Flights to Portugal are expected to be hit by delays and cancellations for more than 24 hours from tomorrow evening due to general strike action in the debt-torn nation.
Airports will be hit by strikes from 21:00hrs on Wednesday until 04:00hrs on Friday, which will cause widespread disruption to travel.
Passengers travelling after 22:00hrs on Wednesday are being advised to contact their airline or travel agent before heading to the airport.
Portuguese pilots are also threatening to strike for a total of eight days, from December 9 to 12 and from January 3 to 6.
