Lufthansa Pilots’ Strike – Wednesday 18th March

The pilots’ union, Vereinigung Cockpit, has called a Germany-wide strike on all Lufthansa continental flights for tomorrow Wednesday, 18 March from 00.01 hours until 23.59 hours CET. Lufthansa long-haul flights will operate as scheduled.

There will be a significant adverse impact on Lufthansa operations during the strike period. However, the Lufthansa Group will still operate the majority of its approximately 3,000 flights a day and will be able to offer most passengers the alternative of rebooking on other flights.

Flights by the Lufthansa Group airlines Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Eurowings, Germanwings and SWISS (operated by OS, SN, EW, 4U, LX) as well as flights by Air Dolomiti (operated by EN) are unaffected by the strike and will operate as scheduled.
