The strike by passport officials at Palma airport appears to be causing little disruption so far, according to passengers who contacted the Bulletin via social media.

"There are no problems. Busy but sailed through this morning at 9.45am," a Bulletin reader said on our facebook site this morning.

It is feared that long queues could start forming towards lunchtime as the volume of flights increases.

The people who are set to be most affected by the stoppage by airport personnel are families with young children who have to go through passport control and can´t use the passport machines.

Anyone with children under 18 can’t use the passport machines and has to have a manually passport check we came with our17 year old daughter in July and couldn’t use them in Mallorca but could when we got back to the UK as there is a different age set for them.
