Deal ends Finnair crew strike

Finnair ended the ten day cabin crew strike that forced the airline to ground two thirds of its flights.

The strike ended late last week after the Finland carrier and the crew’s union agreed on a new wage proposal, Reuters reported.

“The strike ends,” cabin crew workers’ union SLSY said.

“People will return to their jobs without delays.”

Finnair said it lost up to 2.5 million euros for each day the crew was on strike.

“The most important thing is to get aircraft moving again and to end the strike,” Finnair chief executive Mika Vehvilainen said.
