On Monday, flights operated by SAS with Swedish pilots were cancelled due to a continued pilot strike and the airline also announced cancellation for Tuesday flights.
The Swedish pilot union has turned down a second bid by the mediator, which SAS accepted. Flights, operated with Danish and Norwegian pilots, as well as with SAS partner airlines, are planned to operate as normal. Passengers are advised to go to flysas.com for more information. On Tuesday this affects another 240 flights and 25 500 passengers.
“I sincerely apologize to all SAS-customers, Swedish Pilot Union have decided to continue their strike. This affects our passengers and we have done all that’s in our power to avoid a continued strike, but we have unfortunately still been unable to come to an agreement. Our main priority now is to keep taking care of our customers and are working vigilantly to do everything we can to assist passengers affected” says Karin Nyman, Vice President Communications at SAS.
The Swedish Pilot Union SPF called 400 members on short haul routes out on strike, effective Friday, June 10. The majority of the flights operated by SAS with Swedish pilots will be cancelled.
