RIO DE JANEIRO Jan 29 (Reuters) - Airline unions in Brazil agreed to hold a two-hour strike on Wednesday morning to protest for more pay, the National Federation of Aviation Workers (Fentac) said on Friday.

The strike is set to take place between 6 a.m. and 8 a.m. local time (0800-1000 GMT) and will impact airports across Brazil including Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Brasilia.

Unions earlier this week rejected an offer from airlines to increase pay by 11 percent. (Reporting by Juliana Schincariol; Editing by David Gregorio)
