Workers at Budapest Airport Rt staged a two-hour strike over a disagreement with the government, including the sale of Ferihegy International Airport's operator - Portfolio.hu reported. Employees at the airport operator stopped working today at noon Budapest time, affecting 15 departing flights, after five trade unions failed to settle issues such as staff shortage and management approval on holidays with the State Privatization and Holding Rt. (ÁPV), said workers' council chairman Zoltán Kovács. Workers are also complaining about not having been consulted about the sale.
