Event

Flight disruptions have been reported amid an indefinite airport strike by employees of the Airport Assistance Services (SAA) company at Bissau's Osvaldo Vieira International Airport (OXB) on Friday, November 27. The strike action has been called due to alleged unpaid wages. Reports suggest that the work stoppage has prompted significant flight disruptions affecting ASKY Airlines, TAP Air Portugal, and EuroAtlantic Airways services.

Additional disruptions to flight services including delays and cancelations are possible. Protests are possible at airports and outside government offices. Heightened security should be expected in the vicinity of demonstrations. 

Advice

Potentially impacted travelers are advised to monitor developments, confirm the status of their flights prior to departure, and to contact their airline for additional information. Those in Guinea-Bissau are advised to avoid all associated demonstrations as a precaution and heed instructions issued by local authorities.
