A five-day wage strike at Mango has come to an end, the airline said on Friday.
On Monday, workers downed tools demanding an 8,5 percent wage hike following failed negotiations where the airline was offering six percent.
Solidarity accepted a 7 percent increase.
The company said it has since reached an agreement with some of its flight deck crew employees, who are represented by Solidarity.
