Finnair concludes cost-saving negotiations with cabin staff

Finnair and the Finnish Flight Attendants' Association (SLSY) have concluded negotiations in which savings were sought by cutting the cost level and improving the work productivity of cabin staff. The savings will be fully realised from 2007.

Under the savings agreement, Finnair will establish a long-haul group, for which around 400 cabin attendants will be chosen on the basis of applications. In the new long-haul flight group, cabin staff will fly from three to five long-haul flights per month. The present collective employment agreement allows for only two long-haul flights per month.

Finally! The old agreement has been a threat to Asian strategy and growth.

Due to a change in resting time, a flight can depart from a long-haul destination earlier in the morning than at present, which will increase the number of hours that aircraft fly per day.

This is interesting. I always thought that slots are very hard to get and now that Finnair has this new agreement they seem to think that they get new slots too.

Has this agreement something to do with Aero Airlines as well? Finnair wanted to hire new F/As via Aero, but failed (ended up with a strike) and now there have been some news that soon Aero will be closed down and all ATR flights will be operated with Embraers by Finnair. Any news on this front?

Quoting Treg (Reply 1):

Finnair's Finnish partner Finncomm Airlines has ordered new ATR-72-500s which I've seen to be replacing some old Aero's ATR-72 in future schedules. The E70s have also replaced EE's flights lately. If AY doesn't move it's 752s to Aero, which I hope will not happen, I think the future of Aero is very uncertain.

What I would like to see is Finnair ordering a few more E-jets and some Airbus 32S to develope Aero in the Estonian market.

Edit: And maybe a name change to AeroEstonia!  Wink
