A dispute that threatened to disrupt Air Nelson flights has been settled, with pilots set to receive pay rises of nearly eight per cent over three years.

The pilots have now withdrawn their notice of industrial action which was to start today.

The New Zealand Air Line Pilots' Association (Alpa) confirmed that its members employed by Air New Zealand subsidiary Air Nelson reached a settlement in their bargaining for a new collective agreement.

Alpa president Glen Kenny said that if successfully ratified, the new agreement would see pilots achieve salary increases of almost 8 per cent over a three-year period, and enhanced superannuation entitlements.

The parties had also committed to exploring a different pay scheme that could result in more efficient rostering and better rewards for productive flight hours.
