Some Cyprus flights cancelled as British Airline pilots begin 48-hour strike

Three daily scheduled flights from Heathrow airport, UK to Larnaca, south Cyprus and Larnaca to Heathrow on Monday and Tuesday and one from Gatwick to Paphos and back on Monday have been cancelled due to a two-day strike by British Airways pilots.

The flights are cancelled, unless the situation changes, a spokesperson of the airline confirmed on Monday morning.

British Airways pilots began a 48-hour strike on Monday, grounding nearly all its flights and disrupting the plans of thousands of travellers in unprecedented industrial action over a pay dispute.

The British Airline Pilots Association (BALPA) last month gave the airline notice of three days of industrial action in September, in the first-ever strike by BA pilots.

We understand the frustration and disruption BALPA’s strike action has caused our customers. After many months of trying to resolve the pay dispute, we are extremely sorry that it has come to this, BA said in a statement.

Following strikes on Monday and Tuesday, another day of industrial action is scheduled for Sept. 27.
Both sides say they are willing to hold further talks.
