Find out all you need to know here.
When are the Heathrow Airport strikes happening?
The planned strike dates are 26, 27 July, 5, 6, 23 and 24 August.
The July dates are typically the airports busiest weekend as they coincide with the beginning of the school holidays.
It is believed the strikes could affect one million people.
Unite claim the action comes amid deepening anger over pay disparities between workers at the airport and the airports senior staff.
They cited the 103.2% pay increase given to the airports chief executive officer, John Holland-Kaye.
The union are trying to negotiate an 18-month pay offer amounting to an extra £3.75 for the lowest paid staff.
What airlines will be affected by the airport strikes?
British Airways, which operates most of its fights out of Heathrow, has said operations will continue as normal.
However, the results of a pilots ballot is due on 22 July which could result in further strikes for BA.
This ballot follows days of talks which eventually broke down between BA and the pilots union, Balpa, over pay.
Will any other airports be affected by strikes this summer?
easyJet check-in staff at Stansted also announced a series of strikes every weekend over the main summer holidays, starting from 25 July and then every weekend in August.
A spokesperson for easyJet reassured passengers there are contingency plans in place.
There are also several ballots underway which could lead to strikes from baggage scanners and facility workers at Gatwick Airport.
