Finnair’s flights during possible strike

The Finnish Flight Attendants' Association (SLSY) and The Finnish Aviation Union (IAU) issued a warning of industrial action to the Association of Support Service Industries (PALTA) on November 1, 2013. The planned industrial action would take place during the period November 15 to November 23. The strikes scheduled for alternate days would paralyze Finnair’s traffic almost completely.

Negotiations are still ongoing and Finnair is hoping to reach an agreement and avoid the strike. However, Finnair already now has to cancel many flights to avoid congestion at Helsinki Airport in the event of a strike.

SLSY and IAU have also issued an additional warning of industrial action for the period of November 27 to November 30. Finnair is currently analyzing the situation regarding these days.

In case of a cancelled flight, customers should not arrive at the airport but act according to instructions given on the Finnair website, where we are constantly updating flight information.
