Another strike by the Australian Border Force (ABF) is expected to take place on Monday 9 November. Although no official update from the ABF has been released, it has been reported that the strike, instigated by the union, will impact all Australian international airports.
Delays in customs and immigration as well as passenger security screening at airports are expected, with some replacement staff possibly being brought in to help.
If the strike goes ahead, all passengers should allow extra time to compensate for delays. We recommend arriving at the airport three hours before your international flight if travelling overseas on Monday 9 November.
Travel Associates will have more on the looming strike when the ABF issues an official statement.
