Norwegian Air pilot strike

Due to the continuing pilot strike, Norwegian Air has cancelled all of its domestic flights in Norway. The airline also stated that the strike will affect some domestic flights in Sweden and Denmark and most of the flights between the Scandinavian capitals will also be cancelled. The flights between Scandinavia and USA, and Scandinavia and Thailand will not be affected by the pilot strike, the airline said.

In a statement the airline said: “We would like to thank all our customers for being so patient. We will continue to do everything we can to ensure that our passengers will be as little affected by the pilot strike as possible.”

Some 35,000 passengers have been affected by the industrial action that began on the weekend as 650 flight deck crew went on strike over a dispute with subsidiary Norwegian Air Norway over cost-cutting proposals.

Attempts to reach a solution between the company and two unions—the Norwegian Pilot Union (NPU) and Parat—have so far been unsuccessful.
