More than 47,000 new passengers are hit by the SAS strike – the company recommends routes on Wednesday

Again, the screaming airline must cease its flights. SAS warns that hundreds of flights on Wednesday will be framed.

Tomorrow, the company will suspend 504 routes. This will have consequences for more than 47,000 passengers.

"I am deeply concerned that the strike on the pilots is unresolved and that it goes beyond our customers. The consequence is serious for all travelers, the community and also our employees who work nonstop to help customers, writes SAS executive director Rickard Gustafson in a press release.

By May 5, passengers planning to travel with SAS can cancel or reserve their tickets for free.

– For those who do not know if the strike will last in May, those who have tickets before May 5 can rebook them for free, says information manager Knut Morten Johansen of SAS.

In the first five days of the strike, almost 280,000 passengers canceled their flights. No, the strike has hit nearly 330,000 travelers.

The company claims that today there are about 330 aircraft that operate normally.

Situation in jail

SAS airmen have been on strike for almost five days. More than 1,400 SAS aircraft are withdrawn in strikes in Norway, Sweden and Denmark.

On Friday morning, there was a break in talks between the Norwegian Leaflet Federation and Parat on the one hand and NHO Aviation on the other.

Since the negotiations together, there has been no contact between the parties.

– The requirement that pilots' associations make will result in an explosion of costs for SAS, which will seriously undermine long-term competitiveness and therefore all employee work, the SAS manager wrote in a press release.

The company loses millions of dollars a day to strike hard. The stock market's value collapses as the driver strikes.

– SAS has clearly stated that we are ready to continue negotiating and making compromises. The pilots have not yet signaled that they are ready to release their final requirements and return to the negotiating table. That's why we're in a complicated situation, says Gustafson.

This affects the passengers. Many struggled to get help from SAS customer service.

"It is intensified work to be able to create a basis for meeting again in mediation, and we encourage the other party to be constructive, but I do not know status beyond that," says information manager Johansen.
