The warning strike by Lufthansa ground staff announced for tomorrow, Wednesday, will also have an impact on the flight offers of the subsidiaries, including Austrian Airlines. The Austrian airline has canceled all 27 flights to Frankfurt and Munich for July 2022, 18.

Another circulation will also be canceled on July 28, 2022. Austrian Airlines currently assumes that around 2.100 passengers will be affected. According to the current information, the connections to other airports in Germany are not affected, as AUA has commissioned other ground handling providers there.

“Passengers who are affected by a flight cancellation to/from Frankfurt or Munich will be informed immediately. Those affected will be rebooked by Austrian free of charge and usually automatically on another flight and informed via mobile phone number or by e-mail. Due to the peak travel season, however, the available capacities are very limited and it can therefore sometimes take longer to find an adequate or timely rebooking solution. Passengers can also call up the current status of their booking online under "My bookings". Should passengers arrange an alternative travel option themselves (e.g. bus, train), it is recommended to keep all invoices for subsequent reimbursement. The same applies to any hotel accommodation. Refunds can be submitted on the austrian.com website,” a spokeswoman for Austrian Airlines told Aviation.Direct.

Not only at Lufthansa and Austrian Airlines, but also at Swiss, Brussels Airlines, Eurowings and Eurowings Discover, numerous flights will be canceled due to the strike by Lufthansa ground staff. "Third-party airlines" who have commissioned the crane with ground handling are also affected. “Hotspots” are Frankfurt and Munich. At other airports, it depends on whether Lufthansa or an alternative provider is responsible for ground handling. Eurowings in particular has increasingly opted for other companies in recent years, so that the low-cost subsidiary is affected to a lesser extent.
