Avianca pilots’ Colombia strike prolonged by legal wrangling

Monday, October 9, 2017

More than a week after 730 pilots walked-off the job resulting in wide-spread cancellations for passengers traveling on Avianca Colombia flights, the strike continues with no progress in talks between the company and the pilots’ union.

Last week, the airline shelved a “final proposal” to resolve the strike which it considers illegal after the Superior Court of Bogotá considered inadmissible a law-suit presented by Avianca against the union. Delays on the legality of the labor dispute continues to ground 250 flights a day.
