Munich A two-day warning strike has begun at Munich Airport. This was confirmed by a spokesman for the Verdi union early on Sunday morning. For an estimated 200,000 passengers, this means that they will not be able to use the second largest German airport on Sunday and Monday, contrary to their original travel plans.
Regular flight operations will be suspended on both days due to the Verdi warning strike in baggage handling and security services. According to the airport company, a total of around 1,500 connections are affected. Take-offs and landings are therefore only possible for humanitarian flights in emergency operations.
Passengers who have planned a flight to or from Munich on these two days should contact their airline. The airport also advised against driving to the airport on Sunday or Monday despite the warning strike.
While passengers can at least switch to Frankfurt Airport and long-distance trains on Sunday, the search for alternatives on Monday is likely to be even more difficult. Then no more planes will take off or land regularly at Germany’s largest airport in Frankfurt.
In addition, Deutsche Bahn has announced that it will no longer allow long-distance trains to run on Monday due to the simultaneous warning strike by the railway and transport union (EVG).
