Stuttgart Airport also had to announce that no departures will be possible on Friday, April 21, 2023, due to the strike by aviation security staff, which the Verdi union is calling for.
However, arrivals are possible. Passengers who have booked a flight to or from Stuttgart for Friday are asked to check the status of their flight with their airline or tour operator before arriving at the airport.
223 flight movements were originally planned for Friday. The airport regrets the impact that the strike has had on passengers. Collective bargaining between the ver.di trade union and the Federal Association of Aviation Security Companies (BDLS) involves higher time supplements for night, Saturday, Sunday and public holiday work. The airport is not a collective bargaining partner, only the place of work where the industrial dispute is being fought.
