Pilot strike action causes Royal Air Maroc to cancel dozens of flights

Industrial action by disgruntled pilots at the Moroccan national airline Royal Air Maroc causes the airline to cancel over a dozen flights over the last two days.

The airline cancelled ten flights on Friday, four on Saturday, and so far four have been axed on Sunday with more short notice disruption to schedules likely, as the industrial relations worsen. The airline and its pilots have been negotiating for months over a whole raft of issues, but things are not going well. A "heavy social climate" exists in the airline according to the pilots association, adding that it was "exacerbated by 20 months of sterile social dialogue."

The airline says 'Social Tensions' are causing the disruption and that strike action "will have a devastating effect" on the carrier and the association had an "absence of willingness to see the company's development."


Royal Air Maroc advise that passengers can postpone their arrangements before 15th August for no extra charges or a full refund.
