SAS did not agree with the pilots on a solution for temporary and permanent cuts in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis. Thus, the pilots with the least flying hours in the company lose their jobs.
In June, 560 SAS pilots were notified of termination. 200 of these live in Norway, according to Dagens Næringsliv.
If the pilots agreed to permanent cuts and agreed to work part-time for a period during the corona crisis, SAS would be content with half of the redundancies. But this has not happened, according to SAS.
“There is no further dialogue between the parties after the pilot associations chose not to accept SAS’ latest proposal for a solution,” writes information manager John Eckhoff in an email to the newspaper.
The parties met in August, but it is uncertain when the SAS proposal was rejected.
