Strike to hit flights to Portugal



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.
