Air Canada expects to fly after strike threat lifted

Air Canada flights between Bermuda and Toronto are expected to continue as scheduled today after the airline reached a tentative agreement with its flight attendants.

The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), representing some 6,800 flight attendants, had submitted a strike notice that would have come into effect this morning.

However, last night the airline reported that it had reached a tentative agreement and, while the agreement still must be ratified by union members, travel is expected to continue as normal today.

Senior Vice President of Customer Service for the Airline, Susan Welscheid, said: “The conclusion of a tentative agreement is welcome news for our customers, and we would like to thank them for their ongoing loyalty and support during this round of contract negotiations.

“It’s business as usual and customers can continue to make their travel plans on Air Canada with confidence.”
