The strike by Scandinavian Airline pilots in Sweden that has affected some 100,000 passengers and cancelled 1,000 departures, is finally over.

The pilots returned to their cockpits after reaching an agreement with SAS that consisted of a one-year wage deal that includes a wage increase of 2.2 percent.

“It’s been a difficult process and we are relieved that the strike is now over and our customers can depart as planned,” said Richard Gustafson, the head of SAS.

The strike started on Friday and didn’t involve pilots in Denmark and Norway.

The deal means no further flights leaving Denmark should be affected by the strike.
