Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) has agreed a resolution with Swedish pilots’ union SPF preventing industrial action that had been planned for today (May 21).

The row focuses on the airline’s plans to increase its ability to adapt staffing levels to seasonal swings in demand.

The threat of strikes led to the carrier cancelling more than 100 flights in Sweden yesterday (May 20).

In a statement, SAS said it has now agreed resolutions with three of four Scandinavian pilots’ unions.

The airline has yet to confirm if it has reached a resolution with Norwegian union NSF.

SAS said its new collective bargain agreement with SPF is valid for two years and begins with immediate effect.
