At least 24 flights at Norwegian and Widerøe will be canceled as a result of the aircraft maintenance engineer strike on Wednesday. At SAS, everything is currently going as normal.

Norwegian canceled a total of 17 departures.

“Passengers must show up as usual if they have not been informed otherwise,” Norwegian’s press officer, Andreas Hjørnholm, told NTB.

Widerøe has reported seven canceled departures.

“We have seven canceled departures as an indirect or direct consequence of the strike,” Catarina Solli, press manager in Widerøe, noted.

“The route from Tromsø via Alta and Vadsø to Kirkenes. We also have a plane with technical problems in Tromsø,” Solli added.

Worried passengers

Widerøe also asks passengers to show up as normal if they have not heard anything from the airline. She noted that many people are contacting the company, worried about flights in the coming days and next week.

“Unless you have heard from us, your plane will take off as planned.”

SAS has no departures affected by the aircraft technician strike.

“Everyone should show up as normal, and if something happens, we will be in touch directly,” the company’s Norwegian press manager Tonje Sund told NTB.
