Portugal: Air traffic strike disrupts flights


Fresh strike action by air traffic controllers has seriously disrupted flights in Portugal, with delays and cancellations causing misery for passengers.

It is thought some 200 flights would have been affected by the end of the day.

Thursday’s walkouts are part of an ongoing protest at government spending cuts and restructuring in the sector. Further stoppages are planned on Friday and in a week’s time.
