The strike began late Wednesday and is expected to continue until Friday morning. Lisbon bus company Carris was running more services, particularly between Cais do Sodré and Campo Grande.
The action was called in protest at SATA’s failure to implement an accord the unions have already signed with national airline TAP. The first stage of the strike coincides with the Rally Azores and the second with the Santo Christo Feast – one of the Azores’ most important religious festivals.
The Portuguese flag carrier says previously suspended flights are now available and open for sale. But TAP’s decision to suspend the strike depends on whether Azores airline SATA also adheres to the agreement.
Trade unions at flag carrier TAP-Air Portugal have issued a 3-day strike notice for next week, with 21,000 flights already cancelled.
