Flybe has begun scaling up its white label operations in Sweden, flying regional routes on behalf of SAS, Scandinavia’s largest carrier, with an increase over the next couple of months of its ATR-72 fleet from three to five ATR-72 aircraft.
This follows confirmation that Collective Bargaining Agreements have been unanimously agreed with both the pilot and cabin crew workforce employed by GEC for Flybe’s white label operation with SAS.
Saad Hammad, Flybe CEO, said: “I would like to thank all parties involved for their co-operation in concluding local union agreements in Sweden. With immediate effect, this means we at Flybe can scale up our operations in Stockholm on behalf of SAS. It signals the start of a bright new future.”
