The GdF union called the strike from last night to Thursday after the latest talks collapsed. It follows a three-day strike last week at Europe’s third-busiest airport.
Airport operator Fraport said it kept more than 80% of flights running last week and expects to do so during the latest walkout. But German news agency Dapd reported that Lufthansa has cancelled some 140 flights for today.
GdF is demanding double-digit wage increases for around 200 of its workers.
