Flights Delayed by Ben-Gurion Airport Workers' Protest of Manpower Shortage

Scores of flights departed from Ben-Gurion International Airport’s Terminal 3 behind schedule on Thursday as Israel Airport Authority (IAA) workers launched a slowdown to protest what they said was a shortage of manpower.

 

The workers claimed that airport management did not assign sufficient personnel for efficient implementation of the new Hold Baggage Screening (HBS) system. IAA workers’ committee spokeswoman Gali Gabbai said: “The minor delays at Ben Gurion International Airport are caused by the high volume of passengers, and a shortage in manpower.”

 

A statement from the Israel Airports Authority said "Following sanctions of the Aviation Workers Committee that began in Ben Gurion Airport, for unclear reasons, departure delays began to occur."

 

The labor action began early in the morning, with delayed departures for the low-cost airlines that operate out of Ben-Gurion’s Terminal 1. But the slowdown gradually spread to the airport’s main facility, Terminal 3. The airports authority said domestic flights weren’t affected. It was the second time in the past month that airport authorities employees staged a labor slowdown even though management has promised to hire more staff.
