The Verdi union again called for warning strikes. Thus, on Thursday April 20, 2023 and Friday April 21, 2023 there will be strikes at the German airports of Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Cologne and Stuttgart. According to Lufthansa, this will lead to flight cancellations. Italy will not be outdone, because a national strike is taking place today Friday!
The train is also on strike
The German railway union is also increasing its pressure. The strike she called on Friday, April 21, 2023 will not be as widespread as that at the end of March. Nevertheless, massive restrictions and even a complete stoppage of rail traffic can be expected, both for local traffic and for long-distance traffic.
There is also a strike in Italy
A national general strike has also been called on Friday April 21, 2023 in Italy. This will affect air travel and possibly public transport in cities. According to the CUB union, national rail transport is exempt from strikes. The Lufthansa Group announces that its flights to and from Italy have been affected and alternative flights have already been offered to passengers who have booked on these flights.
