Queues at Palma airport

Queues at Palma airport.


Immigration staff at Terminal A at Palma airport, otherwise known as ‘terminal Britain’, last night issued a threat of strike action during the rest of this month which will cause chaos at passport control for hundreds of thousands of British holidaymakers and visitors from other non-Schengen countries.

The dispute is over working hours, wages and no revised contracts.

Unions have yet to decide what the strike dates will be.

It seems that we will now be leaving the EU at the end of October. Having visited Mallorca some 50 times in my lifetime do the Immigration officials really want to target one of the largest contributors to the local economy.. the British tourists? There are plenty of non EU countries waiting to take the mantle of the most popular destination but despite the falling pound many of us have, so far, remained loyal.. will it continue?

Bet the queues are not as long as those at Manchester airport passport control,and they are not on strike just downright inefficient and couldn’t care .

Its no surprise they picked August for the strike...after that airport numbers go down and their threat does not have the same impact....and having seen the number of automatic passport machines being installed..espec in A...I can understand them being a little nervous about the future

More bad publicity for Mallorca. I hope this gets resolved quickly.
