So far, the pilot strike in SAS has cost the company up to SEK 1.3 billion, equivalent to NOK 1.26 billion.

More than 2,550 flights have been canceled, which has affected more than 270,000 passengers, SAS stated in a press release on Thursday.

The strike costs the company SEK 100-130 million per day, which amounts to SEK 1-1.3 billion so far.

“We must reach an agreement and end the strike as soon as possible,” SAS CEO Anko Van der Werff said.

He also noted that the solution must be acceptable to those who have expressed a desire to support SAS if the company succeeds in implementing its rescue package SAS Forward.

The strike also threatens SAS’s legal move in the United States, where the company is trying to secure bankruptcy protection. 

“The strike jeopardizes the implementation of the chapter 11 process, and ultimately, the company’s survival,” Van der Werff said.
