airports in hamburg and berlin have canceled flights strike
Due to a one-day strike by security personnel and ground support staff on Monday, travelers at Berlin and Hamburg, two of Germany’s busiest airports, experienced delays.
The airport serving the capital, Berlin-Brandenburg, announced that all departures had been canceled and that some landings would also be impacted after the Verdi union called for security personnel to go on strike until midnight (2200 GMT).
A spokesperson for the airport reported that 240 flights were expected to depart.
Employees of the private Aviation Handling Services Hamburg (AHS), who handle boarding, lost and found, and check-in for several airlines at Hamburg airport, including Lufthansa (LHAG.DE), also abruptly announced a 24-hour strike.
According to the airport, neither arrivals nor flights operated by other companies were anticipated to be impacted.
Of the 160 departures scheduled for Monday, 84 were to be handled by AHS, and 31 had already been canceled as of 9 a.m. (0700 GMT).
As unions fight for higher wages to offset the rising cost of living, the biggest economy in Europe has experienced some of the most upsetting strikes in decades.
Duesseldorf, Hamburg, Cologne-Bonn, and Stuttgart airports experienced strikes last week.
According to Ralph Beisel, CEO of the airport association ADV, unions were going to absurd lengths to exercise their right to warning strikes before arbitration.
