Passengers arriving into UK airports on 10 May should prepare themselves for delays and disruption, as Border Agency staff stage a walkout in dispute over pensions.
The Immigration Service Union (ISU), which represents around 4,500 Border Agency employees, is to strike for 24 hours from 00.01 tomorrow.
British Airways said it was “planning to operate a normal schedule and will continue to speak with the UK Border Agency in order to minimise any inconvenience to arriving passengers".
The UK Border Agency has asked for travellers arriving in the UK on 10 May to assist them by having travel documents readily available and by using automatic e-passport gates, where possible.
Passengers transferring to another domestic or international flight should also have their onward travel documents available for inspection on arrival in the terminal building, where they will be directed to a dedicated connections route.
Please note that UK Border Agency handles incoming immigration checks at the airports. Departing and international transfer travellers are not affected.
