BAA warns of 12-hour delays at Heathrow Airport on Wednesday

BAA Limited (London) is asking airlines serving London’s Heathrow Airport to cut back on the number of passengers for next Wednesday (November 30) due to a planned Public Sector strike which is expected to produce up to 12-hour delays at LHR.

BAA Ltd. is the Spanish-owned operator of six British airports (including Heathrow Airport) and Naples Airport in Italy, making the company one of the largest transport companies in the world. BAA stems from British Airports Authority and it is owned by a consortium led by Grupo Ferrovial, a Spanish firm specializing in infrastructure.

The main impact area will be in Immigration where the Immigration Services Union will be striking. Immigration staffing levels will be “at a maximum of 30-50%, and that most of those checking passports would have no experience and little training” according to this report by the BBC.
