UK Border Agency Industrial Action, 30th November 2011
25 November 2011 10:25
Public Sector workers including UK Border Agency Staff have voted to strike from 00:01am until 23:59pm on Wednesday 30th November 2011.
As a result it expected that passengers arriving at a UK airport on this date will experience queues and delays at passport control and this in turn may affect all travel to and from the UK.
The management of UK Border Agency have said they will do everything they can to minimise disruption for passengers travelling to the UK, whilst ensuring that the UK Border remains secure.
Passengers who have registered for Iris or EU passengers who have an e-passport should use the automatic gates as they may provide a quicker option. It is anticipated that there will be less UK Border Agency staff on duty at the airports and therefore fast track channels will not be available.
Key Travel is receiving updates from airlines regarding their policies and at this stage, all flights are scheduled to operate as normal. The majority of airlines have not issued direct alternative policies regarding the proposed action and are advising clients that if they do wish to change or cancel their flights travelling on this day, they do so at the published conditions.
For individual airline policies please check the airline website and if you wish to proceed with a change or cancellation to an existing ticket travelling on Wednesday 30th November, please contact your reservations team.Print this page
