Aerolineas Argentinas cancels flights ahead of strike action

Aerolineas Argentinas has confirmed this weekend that it has been forced to take tough action ahead of a nationwide strike scheduled for Tuesday, 30th April.

The government-owned airline has cancelled all 350 flights for Tuesday, affecting more than 22,000 passengers as the 24-hour anti-austerity strike look set to cripple the nations transport systems and public services. 

The people of Argentina are deeply dissatisfied with  President Mauricio Macri programme of austerity as the country battles against recession and super high inflation.  The strike is likely to bring the county to a halt and the airline has preemptively cancelled all flights scheduled to operate on Tuesday.
