Lufthansa has halted flight operations because of a general strike by transport workers today (Monday 27 March).

The carrier said trade union Verdi had called the one-day strike at several German airports, which ‘massively affects’ Frankfurt and Munich airports.

Lufthansa warned: “As this coincides with a public transport strike in Germany on Monday, March 27th, we will not be able to offer all passengers short-term solutions, and advise against traveling to the airports during the affected times.”

Passengers travelling with Lufthansa faced further disruption at Frankfurt on Sunday because of technical problems affecting check-in and boarding, with some flights delayed or cancelled.

The airline said booking alternatives are ‘very limited’ and not all passengers would be able to find a ‘timely alternative’.
