German commerce union Verdi has referred to as one other set of strikes to happen this Friday, March 17, 2023, at Düsseldorf, Cologne/Bonn & Stuttgart airports.

Passengers who anticipate to journey on Friday ought to monitor their reservation and alter their flight to an airport not affected by this strike motion.
Airways are required by EU legislation EC261/2004 to rebook affected passengers on the earliest alternative, even when this implies transferring them to competing airways, or passengers also can go for a refund.

It seems that I’m touring by way of Germany at this time, fortunately on a day unaffected by any of those strikes.
There have been weekly strikes at varied German airports, and there doesn’t look like an finish in sight.
Workers are demanding wage raises attributable to rampant inflation, and airports wish to provide as little as potential. There’s a resolution for this on the finish, however hopefully earlier than later.
