Possible strike would have small impact on air traffic
The Finnish Aviation Union has issued a strike warning concerning work related to the air traffic services of RTG Ground Handling Oy. If implemented, the strike would begin on Thursday, 7 October at 3 p.m.
If the strike is implemented, Finavia will aim to take care of all airport services at Finnish airports as usual. RTG Ground Handling Oy is not responsible for check-in or luggage handling at Helsinki-Vantaa, which means that a possible strike will not affect the international traffic of Helsinki-Vantaa at all.
RTG Ground Handling Oy is the only provider of ground services at the following airports: Joensuu, Jyväskylä, Kajaani, Kemi-Tornio, Kokkola–Pietarsaari, and Kuusamo. The aim is to take care of ground services at these airports as usual, but passengers are requested to arrive at the airport in time.
Finavia requests passengers to contact their airline if they have any questions related to their trip.
