Chile’s Airports Return to Normal after Strike

SANTIAGO – Travelers thronged Chilean airports on Wednesday after the end of a 24-hour strike by some 3,800 employees of the DGAC agency that provides operational support for civil aviation.

“So far everything is normal, and we invite people to come to the airport calmly and with the proper advance time, because we are operating with complete normality,” Nicolas Rodriguez, airport manager for LAN airlines, told reporters.

Crowds, delays at the counter and general ill-humor marked the resumption of service at Santiago International Airport after the labor action that forced the cancelation of some 400 domestic and international flights on Tuesday.

More than 50,000 passengers were affected by the strike, DGAC said.

Jose Perez, president of the union representing DGAC employees, said his organization is ready for dialogue with management even as he highlighted the success of a strike he said was supported by 95 percent of union members.

“We have told the government that we are available to talk and we have a responsibility conducting this process in detail, with seriousness and without delays. We remain on alert,” the union leader said.

The Chilean government denounced the walkout as illegal.
