    Jetstar has cancelled 54 flights as union staff at the low-budget airline continue rolling strikes across Australia

    Jetstar has cancelled 54 flights as union staff at the low-budget airline continue rolling strikes across Australia


    The Australian Federation of Air Pilots says the union's Jetstar pilots are on four-hour work stoppages today
    .
    A similar strike yesterday caused the proactive cancellation of more than 40 flights.

    The pilots' action comes after baggage handlers and ground staff stopped work on Friday at Sydney Airport, Melbourne's Tullamarine and Avalon airports, and in Brisbane, Cairns and Adelaide.

    Staff are striking in protest over pay and health and safety concerns they say the airline has not addressed.
