Avianca hires foreign pilots to combat impact of strike
Colombia’s aviation authority allowed the country’s largest private airline, Avianca, to hire foreign workers to curb the effects of a pilot strike.
Some 700 pilots went on strike to demand better labor conditions two weeks ago.
The strike left Avianca without half its pilots, forcing the airline to cancel more than 3,000 flights, which has affected 280,000 passengers.
