The planned 48-hour strike by Argentine aviation industry labor unions over the Easter weekend has been averted following negotiations with local authorities. 

This agreement ensures that Aerolíneas Argentinas passengers can proceed with their travel plans as scheduled.

In a joint statement, the United Aeronautical Unions APA, APLA, APTA, and UPSA announced that they have reached a partial wage agreement with Aerolíneas Argentinas (AR) and Intercargo (ITC). Intercargo manages tarmac operations for the airline.

"We are pleased to announce that an agreement has been reached, and negotiations are set to resume in April," the unions stated. They expressed hope that both business authorities and national government officials would demonstrate a similar willingness to reach consensus agreements in the future, acknowledging the efforts made to improve the income of AR and ITC workers.

The unions expressed gratitude to the workers for their support during this challenging time and assured that the details of the agreement would be communicated by each organization shortly.

With the strike called off, travelers can now look forward to enjoying the Easter weekend, which coincides with the March 28 and 29 holidays, followed by an extended break due to the April 2 Veteran's Day, commemorating those who lost their lives in the 1982 South Atlantic War.
