Spain - Four-day strike called off at Air Europa - August 31, 2016

Pilots at the airline Air Europa had planned a four-day strike from July 30 to August 2. The pilots had grievances over the outsourcing of part of their fleet to another airline, Aernova. Air Europa pilots also protested the creation of the new low-cost Air Europa Express service. Eleven Air Europa planes will become part of the new fleet, while the budget carrier will also take on some of the established firm’s passenger-carrying work. A last minute deal was struck and the trade union called off the strike.
