The major disruption at Frankfurt Airport is over. Aircraft could not take off or land at the airport for hours due to a major IT failure at the German airline Lufthansa. More than 200 flights from the airport were canceled and part of the incoming aircraft was diverted to other airports, such as Nuremberg, Cologne and Dรผsseldorf.

The outage may have been caused by fiber optic cables being damaged during work at a construction site in Frankfurt, the Frankfurter Allgemeine writes. This led to disruptions for Telekom customers, especially in the north of the city, but also at the airport located west of Frankfurt.

The outage was resolved around the end of the afternoon. Lufthansa asked passengers who had booked a domestic flight to catch the train. The airline expects all aircraft to fly according to schedule tomorrow.

A video is shared on social media of travelers waiting:

There will probably be no passenger flights at all from the airport on Friday due to a union strike. The airports of Munich and Hamburg are also affected by the strike.

Frankfurt Airport warns travelers to avoid the airport on Friday. This advice also applies to passengers with connecting flights.
