Scandinavian Airlines-SAS has made this announcement:

Negotiations between SAS and SPF (Svensk Pilotförening), NSF/NF (Norsk Flygerforbund*), SNF (SAS Norge Pilotforening*) and DPF (Dansk Pilotforening*) are now concluded. The parties have agreed on new collective bargaining agreements and all flights in Denmark, Norway and Sweden will be resumed as soon as possible.

Following the pilot strike, that started on Friday April 26, 2019 the parties in all countries have now reached three-year agreements and the strike has been called off. The pilots will resume their work and traffic is expected to normalize over the next few days.

The agreements between SAS and the pilots’ unions concern predictability of scheduling, job security and salaries. In addition, the previously canceled agreements concerning collaboration and career paths have been reintroduced.

It is too early to provide an estimate of the financial effects, but after six days of pilot strike approximately 360,000 passengers have been affected by 4,015 canceled flights, while SAS’ other employees have worked around the clock to help our customers.

“I want to express my sincere gratitude to all those SAS employees who have worked day and night to help our customers in this difficult situation”, Rickard Gustafson concludes.

Traffic disruptions will continue during the following days while normal traffic is resumed.
