SAS AB reached a deal with pilots to end a 15-day strike, allowing the airline to gradually resume normal operations at one of the busiest times of year for travel. 

The 5 1/2 year agreement will also allow SAS to move ahead with financing talks after it filed for bankruptcy protection in the US earlier in July, the carrier said in a statement. It expects to finalize the funding process within a few weeks.
