    Germany’s main airports to halt operations one day after Lufthansa chaos

    The workers of the operations centers called for this Friday a warning strike to demand, among other things, a salary increase due to the increase in prices and inflation.

    The main airports in Germany will suspend most of their operations this Friday, due to a warning strike that will be carried out by the personnel of the operations centers for one day, reports the local press.

    The strike, called by the Verdi union, will take place in seven air terminals, including the largest in the country: Frankfurt and Munich.

    For now, the companies have rejected these claims. The German airport association ADV provides for the cancellation of 2,340 flights National and international. “The fact that more than 295,000 travelers have to suffer the strike is unacceptable. Solutions must be sought at the negotiating table and not at the expense of passengers“, they criticized from the institution.

    Frankfurt airport, the largest in Germany, had planned to serve more than 1,000 flights and most of them could be canceled due to the strike, affecting approximately 137,000 passengers.
