At midnight, 200 Danish aircraft technicians plan to go on a sympathy strike with the SAS pilots. Thus, even more flights could be canceled next week.

The Danske Metal organization is responsible for the sympathy strike, Danmarks Radio writes.

The aircraft maintenance engineers announcing the strike are also responsible for several aircraft in a SAS subsidiary. If SAS and the employees do not find a quick solution to the conflict, these planes will not be able to carry out ordinary operations after Saturday this week, according to Dansk Metal.

Airplanes need to be serviced every three days to be able to partake in regular air traffic. 

SAS, for its part, states that they have found a solution so that the sympathy strike does not affect more SAS aircraft. At the same time, the press manager of SAS Denmark admits that the strike could have negative consequences.

“It is clear that it affects us in terms of the aircraft that are currently on the ground and need regular maintenance. When the pilots return from the strike, we won’t be able to fly these planes right away,” Alexandra Lindgren Kaoukji stated.
