Air Berlin flights to Mombasa no longer under strike threat


(eTN) – Following a resolution of the imminent strike threat made by the German pilots union “Vereinigung Cockpit,” flights of the airline to the Kenyan resort city of Mombasa now remain as scheduled and will continue without interruption. Disagreements between union and company had led to a ballot, which overwhelmingly endorsed a potential walkout by the pilots. However, a compromise was reportedly reached last week in negotiations, and the union has lifted the strike threat – all flights will proceed as normal.

Air Berlin is also considering, besides the present all-inclusive tour charters, to offer scheduled flights from Berlin to Mombasa, alongside with similar operations to Dubai and Miami, but no final decision on this move has been made, or at the very least not been published.
