Supply to Lisbon's Humberto Delgado Airport is taking place on a “more regular” basis today, but it is not yet possible to lift the restriction measures, ANA – Aeroportos de Portugal said.
In a written reply to Lusa, the official source of the manager indicated that “the supply to Humberto Delgado Airport is taking place more regularly than yesterday. [segunda-feira]. However, the fuel flow is not yet sufficient to lift the aircraft supply restriction measures. ”
During the first day of the strike, which took place this Monday, the 12th, ANA noted that the pace of supply at Humberto Delgado Airport was “insufficient, at levels well below the minimum services stipulated”, causing “restrictions on operation".
In a written reply sent to Lusa on Monday, the airport manager said she was continually assessing the impact of drivers' strikes on fuel supply at their network airports.
The “insufficient” supply rate at that time led to the implementation of operating restrictions, “namely the reduction of aircraft supply”, according to the same source.
This is a precautionary measure for dosing fuel, given the supply difficulties.
With these initiatives, airlines will be able to fill at other airports or before flying to Lisbon.
The strike that began indefinitely on Monday was called by the National Union of Hazardous Drivers (SNMMP) and the Independent Union of Freight Drivers (SIMM) to claim from the National Association of Public Transporters. Freight Roads (Antram) compliance with the agreement signed in May, which provides for a wage increase.
At the end of the first day of shutdown, the Government decreed the civil request, alleging non-compliance with the minimum services.
