One-Third of Frankfurt Flights Affected by Strike

Frankfurt Airport is the third busiest in Europe and it is about to see a disruption of one-third of its flights as a result of a strike that is set to take place tomorrow by the airport’s runway-area controllers.  Peter Schmitz, Chief Operations Officer of Fraport AG, the company that owns the airport, said they are working hard to ensure that two-thirds of the 650 flights tomorrow go off without a hitch.  He also said that the company might seek a court injunction in an effort to stop the strike from happening.

Matthias Maas, a spokesman for the Gewerkschaft der Flugsicherung (GdF) union, said that after talks broke down strike action was set and they will be off the job between 3:00 pm and 10:00 pm.  This airport is the hub of Lufthansa, Europe’s second largest airline.  There has been a mediator to assist with the negotiations and GdF has accepted their recommendations.  However, the airline is standing by their offer.
