Baggage handlers and check-in staff call off the strike scheduled for the Christmas period.
However, the planned strike over the New Year period from 21:00 on 28 December until 03:00 on 30 December remains on.
If the planned strike action goes ahead, it may affect your travel plans. Be prepared for delays and keep in touch with your airline or tour operator for advice on the options available to you.
