Post: No regular flight operations in Frankfurt


There will be no regular air traffic at Frankfurt Airport on Monday due to the warning strikes. Operator Fraport said passengers should not come.

After the warning strike announced by the unions, there will be no regular passenger traffic at Frankfurt Airport next Monday. “All missions enabling full-flight operations” have been suspended due to the warning strike, operations company Fraport said on Thursday.

Fraport therefore urges travelers to avoid traveling to the airport.


Even transfer traffic could not be realized at Germany’s largest airport. According to Fraport, approximately 1,170 take-offs and landings were initially scheduled for that day, with a total of approximately 160,000 passengers.

Nationwide strikes in train traffic too

Verdi and the rail and transport union (EVG) want to paralyze much of public transport with a large-scale warning strike across the country on Monday. Long-distance, regional and S-Bahn transport by Deutsche Bahn and other rail companies are affected by the all-day warning strike. Deutsche Bahn stops all long-distance traffic. Even with regional traffic, “mostly no trains will run,” the group said on Thursday.

The Verdi union is also calling for warning strikes at all German commercial airports except Berlin and on local public transport in seven federal states. The road company and the water and transport administration should also go on strike.

Verdi wants to increase pressure before new round of talks

According to unions, warning strikes at airports are affecting negotiations for public employees on the one hand, local negotiations for ground handling workers on the one hand, and nationwide negotiations for aviation safety workers on the other.

With actions, Verdi is increasing the pressure for the third round of negotiations with federal and local governments, which will begin Monday. Together with the civil servants’ association dbb, for the public sector the union is charging 10.5 per cent more and at least 500 euros more. Employers submitted bids in the second round of negotiations in late February. It includes, among other things, a five percent fee increase in two steps and one-off payments totaling €2,500.
