Hundreds of British Airways (BA) workers at Heathrow airport have voted in favour of strike action later this summer in an ongoing dispute over pay. Unions have said the action was due to a 10 percent pay cut imposed during the peak of the pandemic not being reinstated.

Union members at the British flag carrier, most of whom are check-in staff, are yet to confirm when the strikes will take place, but some 700 workers are expected to walk out.

BA has said it was “extremely disappointed” with the result of the ballot, with Unite and GMB union members both overwhelmingly backing strike action.

This summer could be havoc for holidaymakers and workers travelling abroad due to the ongoing industrial action not just taking place in the UK but also across Europe.

Gatwick will be thrown into chaos as flight departures will be capped during the height of the summer season.

Daily flights from the busy London airport will be capped from 850 to 825 throughout the two-month period, which is expected to lead to 10,000 cancellations.

easyJet is expected to be the most affected airline, and a spokesperson said: “In response to these caps and in order to build additional resilience, easyJet is proactively consolidating a number of flights across affected airports.”
