(Updated 09:55 CEST, May 26)
SAS has signed a new collective agreement with the Swedish Pilot Union (SPF). The negotiations have reached the targets within set timeframe and thus there will be no industrial action by the pilots in Sweden.
SAS has now reached agreements with three of the four pilot unions on new contracts, which means that most of the SAS pilots are now covered by the new Scandinavian collective agreement.
SAS has not yet reached an agreement with the Norwegian pilot union, NSF, which calls for half of the Norwegian pilots.
We apologize for the inconvenience that the already cancelled flights may have caused and hope to return to normal traffic in Sweden as soon as possible. Earlier cancelled flights, according to list below, will not be reinstated; however, no more flights will be cancelled and normal operation to be expected after 14.00.
Traffic in Norway and Denmark will only experience minor traffic disturbances.
We will update our homepage with more information continuously.
