Chaos at the airports.
Two weeks after the successful warning strike by the ground staff of the German AUA parent company Lufthansa in the middle of the summer holidays, the Verdi union is calling for another strike at Munich Airport. The target now is the ground handling service provider Swissport Losch. On this Wednesday, the employees of the midday shift from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. should let their work rest.
Airport warns of failures
The airport warned that there could be flight cancellations and delays in operations. The service provider works for many holiday airlines, said an airport spokesman. Passengers should check with their airline or tour operator.
