Business Travel Alert: Finnish Aviation Union’s strike threat for 19th/20th May has been withdrawn
18th May 2015
The Finnish Aviation Union (FAU) has withdrawn its strike warning for May 19 and 20, 2015. The strike threat was in relation with a dispute between unions involving a collective labour agreement applied to a Finnish ground handling company. Although Finnair was not a party in this dispute, the strike threat was expected to affect Finnair flights. The airline advised that customers who have changed their bookings have the option to change their flights back to their original flights, if they wish. However, the airline advised that any changes must be done before the departure of the new flight. The airline apologises for any inconvenience caused.
During the strike threat, the airline offered travellers the option to change their flights once free of charge under the following conditions:
- Original travel dates are May 19 or 20
- New travel dates are between May 15 and June 16 (excluding May 19 and 20)
- Travellers can change their ticket to another Finnair operated destination, however in such cases the higher fare difference may be charged and lower fare difference may not be refunded.
If you are looking to make changes to your new flight booking, please contact the airline directly. Flightline Travel Management clients should contact their Flight-Line business travel consultant directly.
