UK strike forces Etihad to cancel London bound flights

With a huge strike expected this Wednesday Etihad have taken steps to avoid passengers getting stranded in huge delays at passport control.

Etihad Airways has made several changes to its London-bound flights ahead of the 24 hour strike by Border Agency staff across the United Kingdom on Wednesday 30th November.

Three Etihad flights have been cancelled to spare the airline’s guests the expected disruption in Heathrow airport and the long delays in waiting to clear immigration.

Authorities predict these could last up to 12 hours.

The cancelled flights are EY019 from Abu Dhabi to London Heathrow, EY020 from London Heathrow to Abu Dhabi and EY017 from Abu Dhabi to London Heathrow.

Also, at the request of authorities at London Heathrow Airport flight EY011 from Abu Dhabi to London Heathrow will operate on November 30 with a reduced passenger capacity:

Guests booked on these flights are currently being rebooked by Etihad onto alternative flights.

Meanwhile Etihad flights to Manchester will operate as scheduled.
