In the collective bargaining dispute at the airline Eurowings, the Vereinigung Cockpit pilots’ union has called for a three-day nationwide strike on Monday, October 17th, Tuesday, October 18th and Wednesday, October 19th. Stuttgart Airport is also affected.
On Monday there will be 48 flight cancellations at Stuttgart Airport, as the airport announced in a broadcast. However, the airline carried out around half of the originally planned flights today. The state airport expects similar effects for Tuesday. According to preliminary information, 92 take-offs and landings of 50 Eurowings flights will be cancelled.
The airline continuously adjusts the flight schedules, so last-minute changes are also possible. Passengers of the airline are recommended to find out about the status of their flight several times and also before arriving at the airport and to contact the airline or the tour operator directly in the event of any changes. The airport company regrets the inconvenience caused to passengers by the strike.
