Only 150 temporary workers from Turkey are to be used temporarily at a few German commercial airports. Originally there was talk of around 2.000 temporary workers who were supposed to alleviate the chaos that prevails at various airports in Germany.

For example, Fraport AG says it does not need temporary workers from Turkey. It was also criticized that the promises made by the provider would not correspond to reality. Other airports, including Munich, for example, will request a few temporary workers. There are said to be 45 temporary workers at Bavaria's largest airport.

The employers' association of ground handling service providers in aviation confirmed to the Reuters agency that a total of 150 temporary Turkish workers are to work at German airports. These are to be used in Munich and Nuremberg in particular in the baggage handling area. The federal government has approved the deployment until November 6, 2022 at the latest.

Originally, the Cologne/Bonn and Düsseldorf airports, which were particularly badly affected by staff shortages, also wanted to use numerous temporary workers. However, according to the ABL, they are no longer interested and have therefore not requested any temporary help from Turkey. According to the employers' association, the bureaucratic processes leading up to this took too long and the 2000 summer holidays are already over in North Rhine-Westphalia.
