Due to the call for a strike by the Verdi trade union, there will be no passenger flights at Germany's second largest airport, Munich, on Friday 17 February 2023. The airport has applied to the responsible supervisory authority for exemption from the obligation to operate on this day.
This application was approved - so there will be no regular passenger flights next Friday between 00:00 and Saturday 01:00. All special flights are not affected by this, e.g. B. relief flights, flights for medical, technical and other emergencies and flights for the security conference. The supervisory authority responsible for Munich Airport is the Bavarian State Ministry for Housing, Construction and Transport, which acts as the supreme aviation supervisory authority.
The management of Franz-Josef-Strauß-Airport assumes that the strikes by the Verdi union at a total of seven German commercial airports, will be severely affected. In view of the fact that three professional groups necessary for safe flight operations have been called to stop work, it is not possible to fly the passenger flights on February 17, 2023. Due to the fact that the supervisory authority is suspending the obligation to operate on this day, all flights have been cancelled.
All passengers are strongly advised to check with their respective airline. Current information is available on the Munich Airport website at www.munich-airport.de. The airlines also provide information about rebooking options and, if possible, alternative transportation options. Hamburg Airport also assumes that that it is not possible to fly on Friday and asks passengers and those picking them up not to come to the airport at all. In Stuttgart one counts with significant restrictions, as well in Dortmund.
