Heathrow ground staff will strike for three days from 18 November
Three days of ground staff strikes have been announced from 18- 21 November. The strike could lead to disruption, cancellations, and delays at Heathrow Terminals 2, 3 and 4.
The Unite union said 700 workers involved in ground handling, airside transport and cargo are to go on strike from the early hours of 18 November to the early hours of 21 November 2022.
A Heathrow spokesperson said: "We are aware of proposed industrial action from Dnata and Menzies colleagues at Heathrow, and we are in discussions with our airline partners on what contingency plans they can implement to support their ground handling should the strike go ahead. Our priority is to ensure passengers are not disrupted by airline ground handler shortages."
The strike will have a particular impact on Qatar Airways, which has scheduled an additional 10 flights a week during the FIFA World Cup.
Other airlines that will be impacted by the action include Virgin Atlantic, Singapore Airlines, Cathay-Pacific, and Emirates.
