AENA sources have indicated that there were no cancellations due to the strike carried out by Groundforce workers, who on Wednesday were assigned to the provision of services for 33 flights (66 inbound&outbound operations), most of them international.
According to AENA, the longest delays occurred for two departures and were just over an hour. The rest suffered delays of 15 minutes on average.
Likewise, they indicated that the delivery of luggage has been delayed more than an hour in some cases, most noticed between 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m., when there was a greater volume of operations.
Some passengers have again had to travel without their suitcases, which will be sent on subsequent flights to their destinations, the sources added.
The strike will continue intermittently, with 12-hour stoppages, until September 20, when it will begin to be indefinite, according to the call for the strike, which affects about 350 workers.
According to the President of the Government of the Canary Islands, Ángel Víctor Torres, this Wednesday negotiations have been opened to try to reach an agreement between the workers and the company to call off this strike, which occurs at a “transcendental” moment for tourism and destiny.
The Federation of Hospitality and Tourism of Las Palmas, in a statement, has also expressed its confidence that the labor dispute can be resolved due to the damage it can cause in the tourism sector.
