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/
