The world's largest travel agent, TUI charter airlines, will set up its base in Oslo.

"An agreement on the deployment of a base in Oslo. It will affect 33 employees, but one of them will work in Arlan this winter, says NUA Aspengren, TUI communications manager Nettavisen.

"It's a great blow to our members. Many people have been working for decades. The ten-year-old pilots are now unemployed, says Martin T. Lindgren, chairman of the Swedish pilot association Nettavisen, all TUI pilots.
He pointed out that about 20 of these 20 pilots had the opportunity to work through the TUIfly base in Stockholm or Gothenburg.
"This is not a lover, as these pilots have a life and a family in Oslo," says Lindgren.
Although the company will base the base in Oslo, travel arrangements will continue through partners. Responsibility for short-term network is only accepted by the Dutch Norwegian company Jet Time and charter flights.
Aspengren, on the other hand, says the condition of the pilots has not been fully clarified yet.
"The negotiations with the pilots continue and are a full process," Aspengren said.
Lindgren notes that their decision was taken long time ago.

"The TUI seemed to have decided not to talk to us, and then agreed how it would be. We did not realize that this decision was able to change, "Lindgre said.

Sets the current dialog
Aspengren, on the other hand, is confident that he has good relations with staff.
– Several people have been employed. It's a great joy, TUI Communications Manager says.
"The trade unions think that the decision to give the bases was made before they started a dialogue with them. What do you think of it?
– I do not want to comment. We have noticed that we have good relations with trade unions, "says Aspengren.
– Did you open negotiations in Oslo?
"I do not want to comment," says Aspengren.
The TUI has also suggested placing bases in Malmö and Helsinki, as well as the Parat trade union. This means that 150 ships from TUIfly will lose their jobs on three basis basis.
The TUI statement did not make any final decisions on the Malmo and Helsinki bases.
"The dialogue is still going on," says Aspenberg.
