Travellers will face flight cancellations and major disruption tomorrow (1 February) due to strikes by German airport security staff.

Berlin Airport has cancelled all departures tomorrow, and it has warned arriving flights might also be disrupted.

Frankfurt Airport posted a warning on its website stating the strikes will cause major disruptions and flight cancellations throughout the day.

National carrier Lufthansa has told passengers not to go to the airport if they are flying from Berlin, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Bremen, Leipzig, Dresden and Erfurt.

A statement on Lufthansa’s website said: “The trade union Verdi has announced strikes by security staff at several German airports on Thursday 1 February. Passengers can therefore expect considerable restrictions at security checkpoints.

“We strongly recommend that guests who wish to start their journey at Frankfurt, Hamburg, Bremen, Berlin, Leipzig, Dresden and Erfurt airports on 1 February do not come to the airport.”
