Posted 5 January 2017 · Add Comment

Due to strike action by flight crews, Air Austral has wet-leased several aircraft from ACMI/Charter specialists Hi Fly and Wamos Air for flights between St. Denis de la Réunion and Paris CDG, reports ch-aviation.

Other routes to Antananarivo, Dzaoudzi, Johannesburg O.R. Tambo, and Bangkok Suvarnabhumi are scheduled to continue operating for the most part albeit with occasional delays and cancellations. Select services between St. Pierre de la Réunion and Mauritius have now been switched to St. Denis de la Réunion instead.

Crew have been on strike since the morning of January 2 after negotiations over working conditions failed at the weekend. Staff are demanding fixed-term contracts and more personnel. Negotiations are ongoing.
