Under a system in place since October 21, aid trucks had to drive for inspection to the Al-Awja and Nitzana crossing on Egypt's border with Israel before returning to Rafah, a round trip of more than 80km
Thousands of crew, ground staff and technical workers across Turkey had voted in favor of a strike earlier this month, following the collapse of monthslong pay negotiations between Turkish Airlines and the aviation workers’ union, Hava-Is.
Seeking to avert a strike, the government acted as an intermediate between the union and the company.
The sides reached a solution that was reasonable, responsible, that protected both the workers and the future performance of the company,’ Basesgioglu said.
Under the agreement, Turkish Airlines workers would receive a 10-percent increase this year, and a further 3 percent over the inflation figure in the first half of 2008, and 4 percent on top of the inflation figure in the second half, Basesgioglu said.
A strike could have disrupted air travel in the tourism season, further hampering a sector that was hurt by a series of bombings at vacation resorts last year by separatist Kurdish rebels. Business groups also expressed concern over a possible strike, warning the economy could suffer.
