Thanks in advance
Pilots unions are striking but that is only going to affect AR/AU and other Argentine airlines, not foreign ones. Also, air traffic control is an essential service according to Argentine law, so controllers are not allowed to strike.

Your only concern might be baggage handling, as Intercargo unions are still uncertain about striking.

The unions of bus drivers and of railway staff are not striking, i.e. buses and commuter trains will operate as usual on April 30th*. Only the Subte in Buenos Aires will be affected by the strike.

*Note that buses and trains are striking on May 1st, which is a national holiday.
