Air traffic in Germany has been disrupted due to strikes at three airports. Security personnel at the airports of Hamburg, Düsseldorf and Cologne-Bonn have stopped work due to a collective bargaining conflict. The staff also wants to strike tomorrow. All planes will also be grounded in Stuttgart tomorrow because of the strike.
About 700 flights will be canceled and nearly 100,000 passengers will be affected. Flights to and from German airports have been canceled at Schiphol. Passengers who have booked a flight for today or tomorrow are requested to check the status of their flight before arriving at the airport.
Travelers at the airport in Cologne still hope to catch their flight:
According to German media, a solution to the conflict still seems a long way off. The unions are demanding, among other things, higher allowances for night shifts, weekend shifts and working on public holidays. They also want compensation for price increases due to inflation.
In February, staff also went on strike at more airports. More than 2300 flights were then canceled.
