The two-week-old pilot strike at Air France came to an end Sunday, despite the lack of resolution over the fate of Transavia, the airline’s low-cost carrier.

SNPL France Alpa, the pilots union, ended the job action saying that the strike no longer “serves any purpose.”

The strike cost Air France roughly €20 million ($25.5 million) per day.  The Paris-based airline says that the job action, which started on September 15, will continue through the end of September.

At a news conference, Air France said it plans to “buckle down to develop Transavia in France as originally planned,” adding that the resumption of normal service after the strike would take several days.
