PILOTS flying for Thomas Cook airline have settled their dispute with the company and called off three strikes planned for Friday and the following two weeks.

The eight days of strikes were due after an earlier action in September, believed to be the first British airline pilots strike in decades.

Both the pilots union Balpa and the management of the airline have expressed their pleasure at the fact that they were able to come to an agreement which meant the minimum of disruption to passengers.


Thomas Cook Airline operates from a larger number of British regional airports to Spain with flights mainly to the Canary Islands and the Balearics as well as Alicante.

Some Friday departure times were changed in advance of the calling off of the strike and these changes will remain.
