Norse Atlantic Airways (Norse) and the British Airline Pilots Association (BALPA) have entered into an agreement that will deliver hundreds of jobs in the U.K.
Norse plans to commence affordable flights between Europe and North America in 2022, with a fleet of more environmentally friendly Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.
BALPA’s National Officer Terry Brandon, said: “This is a glimmer of hope for the struggling U.K. aviation industry that is much needed. We are pleased to welcome Norse Atlantic to London and the new jobs they will deliver at this critical time.”
“Our negotiating team has been incredibly impressed with the company’s business plan as it will provide sustainable long-term careers for our members on its transatlantic route network. This collective agreement will facilitate a fruitful relationship between BALPA and Norse to ensure that Norse is a great place to work.”
“With some government restrictions now being lifted, we hope the newest member of the BALPA family flourishes, and our new agreement with Norse provides opportunities for hundreds of our members.”Email Post to a Friend
