Strike action at Heathrow Airport has been suspended for Monday as officials and Unite union have agreed to allow for further talks to take place.

Currently a 24-hour strike is still scheduled for Tuesday.

Despite the walkout being suspended thousands of passengers have suffered disruption as 37 flight departures and arrivals were cancelled.

Heathrow said in a statement, “We remain hopeful that we can find a resolution and stop this disruptive and unnecessary threat of strike action.

“Airlines may choose to reinstate impacted flights.

“We regret that passengers have been inconvenienced by this and urge them to contact their airline for up-to-date information on the status of their service.”

The statement added, “While the vast majority of flights will be unaffected, some airlines are making arrangements to operate flights from other UK airports, others will be delaying flights and unfortunately a number will be cancelled.

“Airlines have now started to contact passengers on affected flights and passengers should contact their airline for more information.

“We recommend passengers check their flight status before travelling to the airport and read the guidance on heathrow.com to prepare for their journey.”
