The situation at Argentina's airports returned to normal today, after a general transport worker strike that blocked the access roads to several airports and forced the cancellation of almost all domestic and some international flights occurred on 20 November.

State-owned Aerolineas Argentinas and Austral cancelled the majority of their flights except for inbound international flights, while LAN Argentina says that it cancelled 46 flights.

Airport operator Aeropuertos Argentina 2000 says that the strike was "previously announced", which "avoided major accumulations of stranded passengers at the airports" and helped the airlines to "have their aircraft positioned to resume normal operations today [Wednesday]".
