On Sunday, Nuremberg Airport said goodbye to those Turkish temporary workers who had been requested on a temporary basis due to a shortage of staff. The federal government had issued temporary work visas.

"We are reluctant to let them go, because they have worked very well with us and have been a great support," says Managing Director Michael Hupe, to whom the employees said goodbye with a "Servus". A total of 19 mostly young men and women from Turkey helped out in baggage handling and cleaning the interior of the aircraft.

Originally it was assumed that at Germany's airports up to 2.000 temporary workers from Turkey should be used temporarily. Ultimately, however, only two airports actually requested temporary help. Next to Nuremberg was this also Munich Airport.
