Event

A strike by pilots of Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) has resulted in more than 1200 flight cancelations as the industrial action enters its third day on Sunday, April 28. Representatives from SAS indicated the airline has canceled flights through Tuesday, April 30, as a precaution, in what officials said will impact nearly 100,000 passengers over the coming days. 

Negotiations are ongoing as of Sunday morning (local time); however, the airline announced travelers should confirm their flight status before heading to the airport. Up-to-date information on flight disruptions can be found on the SAS website.

Context

Pilots affiliated with Norway's employers association NHO launched a strike on April 26 after their demands for a 13 percent wage increase, among other issues, were not met by Scandinavian Airlines (SAS).

Advice

Individuals traveling via SAS are advised to keep abreast of the situation and confirm flight reservations before heading to the airport.
