Pilots working for key Qantas subsidiary Network Aviation are set for strike action.

The strike is slated to commence in the early hours of October 4 following an ongoing dispute over pay conditions.

Network Aviation is critical in operating charter and scheduled services to regional ports in Western Australia from Perth.

Additionally, Network Aviation is integral in offering mining flights to transport those around the state.

The Australian Federation of Air Pilots has described the 24-hour stoppage as necessary following an overwhelming vote of more than 99% in favour of industrial action.

Reaching an agreement between those working for the Qantas subsidiary is crucial for the long-term status of these pilots.

Qantas says it is negotiating with the AFAP and its pilots; however, it is struggling to reach an agreement despite the group noting that they believe their offers are more than suitable.

Under QantasLink operations, Network Aviation has a fleet of over 30 aircraft. This includes Airbus A320s alongside Fokker 100s.
