More Flights Cancelled As Croatia Airlines Strikes Goes Into Day 4

Croatia Airlines were forced to cancel around a dozen flights on Friday as pilots and cabin crew staff continued their 4th day of strike action in a row. The workers are striking after a stalemate in their new collective agreement negotiations. The workers will not agree to salary cuts or reduced leave entitlement.

The strike, which has caused havoc at Zagreb’s main international airport over the past 3 days, has cost the company an estimated 400,000 euros so far. The airline has made sure passengers get to their final destinations by booking them on other airline flights.
Croatia Airlines is currently going through restructuring in an effort to resurrect the loss-making national carrier before Croatia enters the European Union. Until now it had largely survived on government subsidies, but that will no longer be allowed from 1 July when Croatia becomes an EU member state.
