Potential Ground Handling Strike-Affecting UK Airports 23rd & 24th December

Latest Update 20/12/2016, 17:26.

UK airport baggage handlers suspend strike planned for 23 and 24 December, Unite union says.


We have been advised of possible industrial strike action by on 23rd and 24th December 2016 by Swissport baggage handlers, who are the contracted handlers for some of our airline partners at certain UK airports.

We are taking the situation very seriously and are in close communication with the airlines today to understand and work with them on their contingency plans. They have also been assured that Swissport are working hard to find a resolution to the situation at the talks taking place tomorrow.

In the event that the strike action becomes finally and officially confirmed, we will do everything possible to minimise the impact on our guests. We will be contacting every customer who may be affected, via SMS, email or phone, as soon as we know of any changes required to each particular flight. For those guests currently on holiday and due to return to the UK on Friday, please speak with your local Resort Representative.
