Scandinavian Airlines Sverige forced to cancel all traffic
After last night’s non-productive negotiations, Scandinavian Airlines Sverige has been forced to cancel all traffic for Friday, May 25.
“We apologize to all of our customers for the consequences caused by this strike notice from the Swedish Salaried Employees’ Union/Scandinavian Cabin Crew Association,” says Anders Ehrling, President of Scandinavian Airlines Sverige.
“The strike notice has forced us to cancel all traffic already at this time since we do not want to risk any of our customers being stranded at airports that we may not fly to tomorrow,” continues Anders Ehrling.
“The Salaried Employees’ Union is well aware that for an airline a notice of strike means in reality that traffic must be cancelled at a considerably earlier stage than when a notice actually results in strike action,” concludes Anders Ehrling.
Negotiations with the Salaried Employees’ Union/Scandinavian Cabin Crew Association are continuing. A decision regarding Saturday’s traffic will be made on Friday morning.
A detailed list of the SAS flights to and from Sweden that are not affected by the strike notice, and rules for rebooking and refunds are available at http://www.sas.se.
