Germany, Strike, Level 4: Strike of airport employees on 17 February – Germany

2023-02-15: According to the sources, a nationwide airport strike has been scheduled by United Service Union (Verdi) on Friday morning (17 February, local time) and will end on Saturday night (18 February, local time) due to unsuccessful collective bargaining on wage rise. As per reports, the airports in Munich, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Stuttgart, Dortmund, Hanover and Bremen are expected to be most affected. Due to the strike, air traffic delays, cancellations, and possibly a partial halt are likely to have a significant impact, particularly on domestic flights.
In case of a strike, major air traffic disruptions are to be expected. Delays and flight cancellations are likely. Before and after official strike hours, disruptions are also possible due to organisational reasons. Passengers are advised to contact their airline or tour operator about the current flight status in advance to their journey to the airport and to schedule additional time for their journey.
