Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) announced it will maintain 709 flight cancelations through Thursday night (local time), May 2, due to an ongoing strike by airline pilots. Unconfirmed reports claim that SAS and union representatives for the striking pilots are "close to a deal" amid ongoing talks in Oslo (Norway) on Thursday. Representatives from both parties declined to comment on the reports.
SAS has advised travelers to confirm the statuses of their flights before heading to the airport.
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).
Individuals traveling via SAS are advised to keep abreast of the situation and confirm flight reservations before heading to the airport. Up-to-date information on flight disruptions can be found on the SAS website.
