    Portuguese Air Traffic Controllers plan walk-outs today and tomorrow -
    which may effect the plans of British travellers coming to and from the country.
    The strikes will take place between 07:00 - 09:00, 14:00 - 16:00 and 21:00 - 23:00. As the strikes on Friday are planned to start at midnight, they may well extend the disruption into Saturday and the weekend.

    The Foreign Office is advising travellers to contact their travel company or airline if they have travel plans in Portugal over the next few days.
    TAP Air Portugal has already had to change some schedules and even cancel some flights - but passengers on the cancelled flights are being exchanged to alternative dates free of charge.
