650 Norwegian pilots are striking over concerns that Norwegian Air Norway will go bust, leaving the pilots with worse contracts under a new structure.

Some 650 Norwegian pilots, 100 of them Danish, are striking over concerns that their employer, the Norwegian subsidiary Norwegian Air Norway (NAN) will go bust, leaving the pilots with worse contracts under a new structure. Norwegian has brought in the operator Small Planet Airlines, a budget carrier based in Lithuania and Poland, as an alternative for long-range flights. The Danish trade union Serviceforbundet, representing airline security personnel and other airline workers, warned that it would carry out a sympathy strike if a solution to the Norwegian conflict is not found.
