STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Scandinavian airline SAS and unions have not yet reached a deal to end a pilot strike that has affected hundreds of thousands of travelers over the past week, a Swedish employers organization said on Thursday.

“Mediation is still ongoing,” Ebba Fredin, spokeswoman for the Swedish Confederation of Transport Enterprises, said.

SAS is due to hold a news conference later on Thursday.

Norwegian newspaper VG, public broadcaster NRK and business daily DN, all cited unidentified sources, earlier reported that the negotiating parties were nearing an agreement.
