A five-day strike by Portugal’s air traffic controllers has been called off at the last minute.
The strike had been due to begin on Friday, 29 June, and run until Tuesday, 3 July, but the industrial action was cancelled on Thursday morning.
Portugal’s flag-carrier TAP said in a statement: “In order to mitigate as much as possible the effects of this strike, TAP was already rescheduling its operation changing flight departures and also being forced to cancel several flights.
“Following the calling off of the strike, TAP will make every effort to reinstate its regular operation as much as possible.”
Easyjet, which had planned to cancel and reschedule some of its flights to and from Portugal, said it would now revert to its original schedule.
