Lufthansa cancels 800 flights Tuesday

Published on : Tuesday, April 10, 2018

LufthansaLufthansa, the German airline, said it would cancel “more than 800” flights on Tuesday as public-sector workers walk out on strike for more pay, hurting major airports like Frankfurt.

 
“Lufthansa has to cancel more than 800 of its planned 1,600 flights on Tuesday, including 58 long-distance services, because of the strike,” the group said in a statement, adding that around 90,000 passengers would be affected.

 

Service would be back to normal on Wednesday after the strike, which will see groups like support staff and airport fire-fighters walk off the job between 05.00 am and 6.00 pm local time, Lufthansa added. Frankfurt airport warned on its website of “significant delays and cancellations” affecting many airlines. The Tuesday “warning strike” will also hit Munich, Cologne and Bremen airports.

 

In a statement major labour union Verdi said its walkouts between April 10 and 13 aim at “increasing pressure” on employers to “allow public sector workers a share in good economic performance” in Europe’s largest economy, where tax income has surged as the pace of growth has picked up.
