Gem til liste

The Lufthansa strike is affecting much of Europe’s air travel today – with among other airlines SAS having to cancel a large number of flights to Germany.

“SAS has cancelled 36 departures to and from Germany. These are flights to Munich, Hamburg, Frankfurt, Dusseldorff and Stuttgart,” SAS Press Officer Trine Kromann-Mikkelsen tells Ekstra Bladet. Passengers booked on cancelled flights will either be re-booked on other flights or be refunded.

Flights to Berlin are the only flights that have not been affected by the strike.

A total of 10 German airports have largely been put out of commission, resulting in 1,700 cancelled flights. Lufthansa is attempting to limit the strike’s effect to internal European travel in order that long-distance flights can continue.

Check-in.dk says that the strike is the result of failed wage negotiations with the Ver.di union which covers 33,000 Lufthansa employees and in particular ground staff.

Those who are due to travel to Germany today are advised to check their airline’s home page as well as information sent out by mail.

Departures from Billund in Denmark are also affected.
