SAS Breaking Pilot Regulations

Published fredag 3 februari 2006 kl 13.05

After strikes over pilots’ pay and conditions, the Scandinavian civil aviation authorities now say the Scandinavian Airlines System is breaking regulations.

Pilots have welcomed the criticism which highlights that their shifts can be 20 hours long, even though there’s a safety ceiling of 14 hours.

The authorities say time taken to transport pilots to and from their departure airports must be counted within the framework of their working day. 300 Swedish and Norwegian pilots are affected by the current system.

SAS maintains it is not going against any regulations as flying pilots to Copenhagen where their flights are scheduled to depart from is a company perk. SAS says pilots are welcome to drive their car to Copenhagen instead.
