Portuguese airline TAP announced yesterday that the crew strike, scheduled for January 25-31, will lead to the cancellation of 1,316 flights and generate a direct impact of 48 million euros, according to a statement..

"With this new stoppage, 1,316 flights will be canceled and 156,000 passengers will be affected, which represents an estimated total direct cost of 48 million euros (29.3 million in lost revenue and 18.7 million in compensation to passengers)," said TAP, quoted by Lusa.

The carrier also predicts "losses of an additional 20 million due to the potential impact on sales for other days and the sub-optimization of other flights, with rebooked passengers".

The members of the National Union of Civil Aviation Flight Personnel (SNPVAC) rejected TAP's proposal at a general meeting yesterday and decided to maintain the strike notice between January 25 and 31, according to an official source.
