Stansted Airport say they are working to minimise disruption for Christmas passengers following the announcement of strikes by Swissport workers.
More than 1,500 check-in staff, baggage handlers and cargo crew at 18 airports will strike for 48 hours.
Members of Unite employed by Swissport will walk out on December 23 and 24.
A Stansted Airport spokesman said: "We are aware of this potential action and are contacting the airlines which use Swissport to understand their contingency plans to minimise any disruption were the strikes to go ahead."
Luton Airport is also looking into contingency plans for the strike.
"We are assessing the likely impact of the potential action and discussing contingencies with our relevant airline partners and Swissport in order to ensure passengers face minimal disruption should the strikes go ahead".

More than 24 million passengers passed through Stansted Airport this year - for only the second time in its history.
Stansted says it’s closing in on its all-time passenger record.
In the 12 months up to September, 24,009,348 used the airport. That’s an 8.4% increase in the previous year and only 6,000 short of the record set in October 2007.
In September alone, nearly 2.2 million passengers passed through Stansted - up by 7% on the same time last year. It was the airport’s second busiest September.
“September was once again a strong month of passenger growth, despite the end of the traditional school holiday getaway, with volumes up nearly seven per cent over the same month last year.
This helped push the annual total tantalisingly close to Stansted’s all-time passenger high, a record I’m sure we will pass during this month.”
Ryanair says it's going to cut the capacity and frequency of many of its routes from Stansted airport this winter because of the Brexit result.
The airline want to focus more on growth at airports in the European Union in the next couple of years, rather than in the UK. They've reassured passengers that no routes will close completely though.
A plane from Stansted was directed into the path of another aircraft by an over-worked air traffic controller.
An official report found the pilots of the two aircraft had flown too close to each other over Essex, after the Boeing 737 had been told to climb.
An investigation found the air traffic controller had given the instruction to the wrong plane because of his high workload.
The Stansted-based airline Ryanair has cancelled 166 flights today to and from and over France because of another strike by French air traffic controllers.
It's the 52nd French strike since 2009 and Ryanair are calling on the European Commission to take action.
Ryanair says 30,000 customers have had their flights cancelled today and over 100,000 others will suffer severe delays.
It is time for action by the European Commission following this latest French ATC strike aimed at disrupting as many travel plans as possible.
The frequency of these strikes, right in the middle of the holiday season only serves to underline how urgent action is required to help reduce the impact of these strikes.
