Pilots in Air Europa have called strike action from September 22, and say they will stop work on every Monday and Thursday from then.

They say that they are justified in their action because of the situation in which they find themselves in the talks on wages, and because of the ‘externalisation’ of certain routes. By that they are referring to the code-sharing with the Orizonia airline on routes to Cancun and Punta Cana, and an extension of the deal, without union consent, to domestic routes to and from the Canaries.

The strike has been called by the Sepla Pilots’ Union which represents 96% of the pilots in Air Europa.

The airline has voiced its surprise at the news saying that there is no conflict to justify a strike call.
