The strike of the Swedish pilots at SAS will affect Norwegian travelers on Tuesday as well . – We will take care of those who are affected , the CIO promises.
On Tuesday will be the same number of aircraft will be canceled as on Monday . There are now several planes that go from Norway to Arlanda in Stockholm temporarily, eight planes in total.
– The situation Tuesday is the same is it was on Monday. Around 1,000 Norwegian travelers are affected by the strike, and we have done our best to minimize the negative impact for them by transferring them to other flights. Some have decided to travel at a later date, while others have canceled their trips, head of information at SAS, Knut Morten Johansen, said.
Affected passengers will receive an SMS. Updated information has also been put on SAS.no under “flight status”, the company said.
Desperate Swedes who want to get to France and see their national team play in the UEFA European Football Championship, will largely be transported to Norway by planes with Norwegian personnel and then flown from Norway to France, Johansen said.
– We can still conclude that the strike in Sweden does not impact on Norwegians travelling by planes much, the CIO says.
There is still no agreement in sight between the parties in the SAS strike, which has lead to 240 canceled flights on Tuesday, which affects 25,500 travelers in total
