Travel Alert: Possible Strike by Pilots’ Union of TAP Portugal From May 1 Through May 10, 2015

n announcement has been posted on the official Internet web site of Transportes Aéreos Portugueses — an airline better known as TAP Portugal — pertaining to the possibility of labor action by members of the Pilots’ Union between Friday, May 1, 2015 and Sunday, May 10, 2015; and the strike could disrupt flights in the form of delays or cancellations:

Pilots’ Union Strike: 1 to 10 May

The Pilots’ Union has announced a strike from May 1st to May 10th, which will affect TAP’s operation if it goes ahead.
TAP will allow passengers with confirmed bookings on flights scheduled throughout the above dates to change to alternative TAP flights outside the strike period.
Minimum services – an arbitration tribunal that will set the number of flights that must be ensured by the Union – will be announced in the coming days.
Any updated information concerning this situation will be published as soon as possible across all our communication channels.
TAP will endeavour to minimise the impact of the strike on our passengers and regrets the inconvenience caused by the decision taken by the Pilots’ Union.
TAP will do everything in its power to work towards a solution that avoids this strike action.

Hopefully the strike will be averted by the time May arrives; but I thought I would alert you just in case. If there is a possibility that your travel plans could be disrupted, keep yourself updated with TAP Portugal for the latest news and information.

Safe travels to you…
