[CALLED OFF] - LIS - immigration inspectors planning strikes 24-25 AUG

If you're flying though LIS to/from non-schengen destinations, be aware that SEF (immigration inspectors) are planning a strike on Aug 24-25. There will probably be a minimum service level declared by the courts a couple of days before, which means super long queues.

Minimum services have been announced - there will be ⅓ of the normal number of inspectors, so expect long lines.

The strike has been called off.

The automated lanes were to operate regardless.
