Due to the three-day strike at Lufthansa subsidiary Eurowings, flights will also be cancelled at the capital's airport BER from Monday to Wednesday.

About half of all the airline's daily connections are affected, according to the airport's departure information. Most of these are domestic flights to Stuttgart, Cologne/Bonn or Düsseldorf. However, connections to Palma de Mallorca are also affected.

Strike started on Monday

The industrial action began early Monday morning as planned, said a spokesperson for the Vereinigung Cockpit (VC) pilots' union. Nationwide, about 230 of the 400 planned flights could be carried out on Monday. For Tuesday and Wednesday, Eurowings also expects that more than half of the planned flight programme can take place.

Second strike within 14 days

This is the second time in less than 14 days that pilots at the Lufthansa subsidiary have stopped working. During the first strike on October 6, about half of all flights were cancelled. Tens of thousands of passengers therefore had to switch to other flights or the train - or postpone their journey.
