With the BBC reporting that talks have begun between airports operator BAA and the Unite Union to try to avert strike action that could close six UK airports later this month, but will it really stop the BAA Airport Strike in time?

Security staff, engineers, and fire fighters have voted to strike over a pay offer of up to 1.5%.

The UK strikes could close the six main airports in England, including: -

  • Heathrow
  • Standstead
  • Southampton
  • Edinburgh
  • Glasgow
  • Aberdeen

If these strikes are to commence, then it’s likely that it’ll begin on the 23rd August, as it has to give the company seven day’s notice, although some analysts suggest that Unite may target the August Bank Holiday weekend, which is the 28th August to get maximum impact, but the Unions leaders have refused to confirm either way.

Although some observers believe strike action is unlikely, so this could be a good thing for those holidays makers already overseas looking at returning on or around the end of August.

One things for sure though, if you are travelling overseas, it’ll be recommended to look into what cheap hotels are in your area, just in case you end up staying on holiday for longer than originally expected, as during the peek holiday season, many hotels are fully booked and may not allow you to stay longer than originally booked.
