SAS announces it expects additional traffic disruptions due to pilot strike, cancels more flights

Scandinavian Airlines-SAS Airbus A320-251N WL SE-ROE (msn 7791) AYT (Ton Jochems). Image: 943747.

Scandinavian Airlines-SAS has made this announcement:

We deeply regret that our customers are being affected by the ongoing pilot strike that has led to delays and cancellations. As a result of the ongoing conflict, SAS will cancel additional departures on Wednesday.

In total, about 47 000 travelers will be affected when SAS cancels 504 departures across Scandinavia on Wednesday 1 May. See the table below for information about all canceled departures. In the meantime, we’re doing everything we can to help our travelers affected by the strike. SAS is striving to reach a solution as quickly as possible to prevent additional inconveniences for travelers. Negotiations between SAS and the pilots’ unions have not yet resumed.

“I am deeply concerned that the pilot strike hasn’t been resolved and that it is continuing to affect our customers. The consequences are serious for all travelers, for society and also for all our employees who are working around the clock to help everyone. The demands made by the pilots’ unions entail significant cost increases for SAS that would threaten the company’s long-term competitiveness and consequently, the jobs of all SAS’ employees. SAS has clearly stated that we are prepared to continue negotiating and find a solution. The unions have not yet indicated that they are ready to release their ultimate demands and return to the negotiating table, which means that we remain in a deadlock”, says Rickard Gustafson, President & CEO of SAS.

Flights operated by SAS’ partners will not be affected by the strike. Travelers concerned that the strike could impact their travel plans may rebook or cancel their tickets free of charge until 5 May. More detailed information about rebooking and cancellation rules can be found on SAS’ website at https://www.flysas.com/en/traffic-information/disruptions/

Date Canceled departures No. of passengers
Friday April 26 673 72 300
Saturday April 27 329 33 912
Sunday April 28 587 63 360

Pilot strike at SAS expands as the pilot unions in Denmark and Norway also strike, 673 flights cancelled today

The Rain - Danish post-apocalyptic web TV series

Scandinavian Airlines-SAS has issued this statement:

Members of the Swedish pilot union (Svensk Pilotförening, SPF) in SAS Scandinavia have been called out on strike. As a consequence of the strike, domestic, European and long-haul flights have been canceled, and thousands of travelers will be affected. Flights operated by SAS Ireland and airlines that are subcontractors of SAS will not be affected by the strike.

The strike follows SPF’s rejection of the mediator proposals for agreements. Negotiations have been held since March with the support of external mediators in the final stages. SAS wishes to continue negotiations and reach an agreement to end the strike as soon as possible. Negotiations are still ongoing in Denmark and Norway.

All members of the Swedish pilot unions have been called out on strike which means that many domestic, European and long-haul flights have been canceled. The strike does not include flights operated by SAS partners, which make up approximately 30% of all departures.

The strike follows lack of success in reaching an agreement between the parties. Negotiations have been held in all three countries since March and with the support of external mediators in the final stages. SAS wishes to continue negotiations and reach an agreement to end the strike as soon as possible.

“It is deeply regretful that the pilots strike will have a negative impact on our customers. SAS is prepared to continue to negotiate, but if the requirements were to be met, they would have very negative consequences for the company. Nonetheless, the pilot associations have chosen conflict. Our first priority now is to take care of our passengers and at this moment in time, all SAS employees are doing everything they can to help customers affected,” says Karin Nyman, Director of Communications at SAS.

All members of the pilot unions have been called out on strike which means that most domestic, European and all long-haul flights have been canceled. The strike does not include flights operated by SAS partners, which make up approximately 30% of all departures.
Customers who have a flight booked, are advised to check if their flight is impacted by the strike at www.flysas.com/en/disruptions.

On Friday, April 26, 673 flights will be canceled affecting over 72,000 passengers.

SAS will send updates via SMS and email to those passengers affected. There is a dedicated page for all information concerning traffic disruptions: www.flysas.com/en/disruptions, which will be updated continuously. Everyone who has a flight booked is advised to check the status of their flight on the website before going to the airport as flight status information is frequently updated.

TRAFFIC DISRUPTIONS DUE TO PILOT STRIKE IN DENMARK, NORWAY AND SWEDEN

We’re sorry if you’ve been affected by the ongoing pilot strike that has led to delays and canceled flights.

We’re doing everything we can to help everyone.

Flights operated by SAS’ partners will not be affected by the strike.

SAS is striving to reach a solution as quickly as possible to prevent additional inconveniences for travelers.
