German flights cancelled tomorrow

Strikes will hit six German airports

The German airline Lufthansa has cancelled almost 900 flights tomorrow ahead of planned strikes at airports in Frankfurt, Munich, Dusseldorf, Cologne, Dortmund and Hannover.

Over 87,000 passengers will be affected and only about 40 percent of Lufthansa’s scheduled flights will take off.

Danish traffic affected
SAS said that Danish air traffic will be affected by the strike, including routes between Frankfurt and Copenhagen and Munich and Copenhagen.

“Due to the strike in Germany, SAS must unfortunately cancel a string of departures on Wednesday to and from Frankfurt and Munich,” said SAS spokesperson Anna Nielsen.

“We apologise to our customers and will do our best to rebook. We are also offering refunds.”

Wage war
SAS is notifying passengers directly via SMS, suggesting they refer to ‘check my flight’ on sas.dk for updates.

The strikes will hit security, baggage handling and workshops. It chiefly involves one of Germany’s largest industrial trade unions, Verdi, which is involved in an ongoing wage war with the government.
