Due to the controllers’ strike, there will be no cargo flights in Argentina
The Association of Technicians and Employees of the Protection and Safety of Aeronautics (ATEPSA for its initials in Spanish), the union that represents the controllers, yesterday announced the implementation of its plan of progressive measures of force . It will go into effect from today Saturday June 26 and will affect freight transport, business aviation and general aviation services, including flight schools. Humanitarian flights, cargo flights for pharmacological supplies (including vaccines) and medical transport will not be affected.
The measure has already been received by EANA, the company responsible for providing air navigation services in the country. By NOTAM, the crews were informed that operating delays could be expected.
The workers’ plan of struggle will be progressive. It will initially affect the activities outlined in this note.
Mañana comienzan las medidas legítimas de acción sindical de los servicios de navegación aerea. No se autorizarán despegues nor se acceptarán planes de vuelo de aeronaves de aviación general or de carga según corresponded cada día y horario. Porqué? 👇 pic.twitter.com/TlmPUAx2JT

An escalation of the conflict is not excluded if there is no resolution. As the annex shows, if there is no agreement between the parties, as of Monday, July 12, the commercial cabotage service could start to suffer.
