Mediation between the unions LO Stat and YS-Spekter/Delta and the employers’ association Spekter starts on Thursday 10 am, and deadline is set at midnight. 310 Avinor employees have been selected for the first round of strike action.
In case of a strike, the following airports will be closed for regular traffic from Friday at 11 am:
Alta, Bergen, Førde, Haugesund, Honningsvåg, Leknes, Rørvik, Sandnessjøen and Ålesund.
“Almost 30,000 passengers will be travelling to and from these airports on Friday alone. Due to school holidays that start on 17 June, Bergen Airport faces one of the busiest weekends of the year. We expect delays throughout the Avinor network as a result of this”, says Head of Communications at Avinor, Gurli Høeg Ulverud.
Avinor requests passengers to take notice of the flight information issued by their airlines. How long the strike might last is uncertain.
By agreement with the unions, airports will be kept operational for ambulance and rescue flights, and for air traffic related to national security.
