ALGIERS — Air traffic from and to Houari Boumediene airport of Algiers will resume gradually on Monday (Nov. 14), following a stoppage on Sunday by the pilots of Air Algerie, one of the national airline’s officials told APS, disclosing that negotiations will start to consider their demands.
“The CEO of the Algerian airline, Mohamed Abdou Bouderbala, went to the airport, as Air Algerie’s management has started negotiations with the pilots’ union to examine the socio-professional demands,” said the communication officer of the airline, Mounia Bertouche.
The strike, launched Sunday evening, concerned only Houari Boumediene airport.
The strike led to the cancellation of the international flights to Istanbul and Dubai, in addition to some domestic flights, Betouche said, adding that air traffic resumes Monday morning.
“There are plans to resort to combination of flights on Monday,” Air Algeria’s official said, adding that everything will be back to normal by the end of the day.”
