Finnair Cancels Flights

Nov 26, 2019

Finland’s national air carrier Finnair canceled more than 250 flights scheduled for 25 November 2019 after the Finnish Aviation Union announced that its members would join an ongoing strike by employees of the mail carrier Posti. At least 20,000 travelers are expected to be affected by the cancellations; however, the disruptions will likely have an even greater impact as the strike is expected to affect all ground services for airlines operating to and from Finnish airports. In addition, the Finnish Seafarer’s Union and Helsinki’s public bus operators are observing an ongoing strike in solidarity with Posti beginning on 24 November. Public transportation in Helsinki and port operations across the country are expected to be significantly disrupted throughout the day. Labor leaders have stated that the strikes are expected to last until Posti employees reach an agreement over pay grievances with the government; negotiations halted over the weekend, and it is not known when they will resume.
