SAS strike hits hundreds of passengers

Strike hits some Swedish flights and operations to Finland
Hundreds of passengers are being hit by an ongoing strike at SAS in Sweden, as employees walk out over salaries and conditions for contracted crew members.
Almost 500 people have been affected so far and 850 more may be hit during Tuesday. Flights to and from Stockholm Arlanda and Kalmar and Visby in Sweden were cancelled on Monday, as were services to Åbo and Vasa in Finland. The same routes are down on Tuesday.
However, other domestic services in Sweden and international flights are expected to continue as usual.
As previously reported, the argument is focused on around 30 cabin crew who work on SAS flights that are operated by the UK-based budget carrier Flybe. They are employed by recruitment firm Global Employer Agency.
