Lufthansa cancels around 900 flights today
Lufthansa has cancelled 895 flights today because of the airport strike by the union Verdi. It expects to operate 40% of its 1,500 flights to and from German airports during the day.
As reported, the strikes are aimed at airports in Frankfurt, Munich, Dusseldorf, Cologne, Dortmund and Hannover. More than 87,000 passengers are affected.
SAS says that Scandinavian air traffic will be affected by the strike: “Due to the strike in Germany, SAS must unfortunately cancel a string of departures on Wednesday to and from Frankfurt and Munich,” said spokesperson Anna Nielsen. “We apologise to our customers and will do our best to rebook. We are also offering refunds.”
