Pilots working for the airline owned by tour operator Thomas Cook PLC (LON:TCG) have called off eight days of planned industrial action after their union, BALPA and the company agreed to enter arbitration to end a dispute over pay.
The pilots have previously held one 12-hour and one 24-hour strike, although a strike planned for last Friday was called off last week following talks.

Thomas Cook has said that all its passengers were able to fly during the industrial action.
The resolution of the dispute means that industrial action planned for this Friday, as well as a three-day strike from October 12 and four-day strike from October 18, have all been called off.
A spokesman for Thomas Cook Airlines said in a statement: "We remain keen to resolve this dispute in the interests of all involved and we will now focus on proceeding with the arbitration process."
BALPA general secretary Brian Strutton said: “Our members voted to end this dispute by binding arbitration, which Thomas Cook has now agreed to.
“I am pleased that we have been able to find a peaceful way of resolving the pilots' pay dispute without further disruption to passengers."
