Several thousand Norwegians were affected by canceled Norwegian flights on Saturday. However, this Sunday all of their flights departed at the scheduled time and it appears they will do so on Monday as well,
– Air traffic will resume as normal. So far there has been no further cancellations. Everything looks good now, press officer in Norwegian, Charlotte Holmbergh Jacobsson, says to NTB.
The only route where flights were canceled on Sunday and that also has been canceled on Monday is Copenhagen-Helsinki/Helsinki-Copenhagen. The reason is lack of pilots.
At least 18 Norwegian-flights were canceled at short notice Saturday. This included both domestic and international flights. Flights to popular holiday destinations such as Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus and Spain were canceled, both from Oslo, Værnes and Stavanger.
The cancellations came after an overtime agreement between the airlines and the pilots expired. The contract covers the purchase and sale of holidays.
