Air France pilots end strike

Air France passenger traffic climbed in H1 2012
Air France has suffered from two weeks of strikes

Air France will start to resume normal operations tomorrow (30 September) after pilots returned to work from two weeks of strikes.

Yet while the industrial action has stopped the pilots union SNPL and the airline have yet to reach an agreement over plans to expand Transavia as a low-cost brand.

The airline rejected the union’s suggestion to appoint an independent mediator on Friday evening which led to cancellations on Sunday, marking 14 days of industrial action.

Services remained impacted by the strikes yesterday but are set to ‘gradually return to normal’ tomorrow.

The pilots went on strike over plans to develop the Transavia brand. Around 60% of flights were cancelled during every day of the industrial action.
