German airports set for more flight disruption with security staff strike
Flight disruption is expected at German airports on March 22, 2022 after a union representing security staff called for more walkouts in a wage dispute.
Security staff will stage strikes at eight Germany airports on Tuesday - Berlin, Bremen, Cologne, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Hanover and Stuttgart. Passengers are being told to check their flight status with their airlines.
Union Verdi had also called for strikes last week, causing hundreds of flight cancellations across two days at major German airports.
Lufthansa (LHAB) (LHA), Germany’s largest airline, and Frankfurt airport operator Fraport warned passengers they will not be able to make their flight if their journey starts in Frankfurt because security checkpoints outside the transit area will be closed.
“We therefore strongly advise all originating passengers from FRA to avoid coming to the airport,” Fraport said.
The union is demanding a pay increase of at least €1.00 per hour and says starting pay, which is lower until the employee has worked for 24 months, should also be increased. Pay talks will continue on March 24, 2022.
