The all-day strike planned for tomorrow by pilots’ union Vereinigung Cockpit (VC) is expected to paralyze every second flight at Eurowings Germany. A total of 30,000 passengers are likely to be affected by the strike.
However, the Lufthansa subsidiary will do everything possible to minimize the impact of the strike measures on passengers, the airline announced today. Only flights from Eurowings Germany are affected by the call to strike, not flights from Eurowings Europe.
Passengers should keep themselves informed
The airline assumes it will be “able to carry out about half of the normal flight programme”. The airline can also refer to partners in the Lufthansa Group. Passengers were asked to inform themselves about the status of their flight on the website or via the Eurowings customer app.
Passengers whose flight has been canceled due to the strike should be advised of alternative transportation options this afternoon at the latest, the statement said.
Yesterday, the Vereinigung Cockpit pilots’ union announced that negotiations on a general pay agreement at the Lufthansa subsidiary had failed. Eurowings criticized the announced strike as disproportionate and irresponsible.
