Budget airline Norwegian Air has been forced to cancel flights for the 11th day after failing to reach an agreement with the Norwegian Pilot Union and labour group Parat.

The strikes began on February 28 with 70 of the airline’s pilots demanding better job security; it is now estimated more than 700 Scandinavian pilots are taking part in industrial action.

On its website today (March 10) Norwegian confirmed it has cancelled nearly all of its domestic flights in Norway and Sweden, most flights between Oslo, Copenhagen and Stockholm and some European routes.

It expects some domestic routes in Denmark to operate, while it says direct flights to and from the US and Thailand will not be affected by the strike.
