Airline workers to strike over open skies pact with EU

Published: 04.18.13, 13:24 / Israel News

The workers unions for El Al, Arkia and Israir have announced they are launching a general strike starting Sunday in protest of the government's plan to sign an open skies agreement with the European Union.

 

The agreement will allow all EU airlines to operate direct flights from Europe to Israel and all Israeli airlines to fly to EU destinations. The unions are claiming this will destroy Israeli airlines and will lead to major redundancies. (Billy Frenkel)
