Airports Company South Africa monitor reports of possible strike action

Posted 27 September 2017 · Add Comment

Airports Company South Africa has been monitoring reports about the possible nationwide strike action for Wednesday 27 September.

Given the statements issued by the South African Police Service and metro authorities, as well as uncertainties involved in anticipating the impact of strike action, the company has advised passengers to allow for delays and longer travelling time to the airport

While Airports Company South Africa is not aware of specific strike action focused on airports, it is possible that there could be traffic delays that would affect airport access routes.

The managements of airports are staying in close contact with the metro authorities and the South African Police Service in order to identify as early as possible any potential delays.

Strike action of this nature is not entirely predictable and passengers scheduled to depart from airports on Wednesday should make every effort to give themselves more time to get to the airport.

Airport managements also advise passengers travelling on Wednesday to follow local news updates on the strike action. While strike action could affect various forms of transport, the company advises passengers heading for airport to use public transport wherever feasible.
