Sybille Reuter /

Berlin’s Brandenburg Airport (BER) announced that no passenger flights will operate on Wednesday, January 25, 2023 due to strike action called by ground staff.

“The airport company officially informed its partners, such as airlines, ground handling service providers, security companies and businesses located at the airport, about this in the evening,” the airport operator announced on January 23, 2023. 

The airport estimates that around 300 take-offs and landings and 35,000 passengers will be affected. 

Verdi.di, the second-largest trade union in Germany, issued a warning that its members would be holding an all-day strike, stating that no solution has been met yet for “wage rounds.”

The airport urged passengers with affected flights to contact their respective airlines immediately.
