All departures at Hamburg Airport will be canceled on March 22, 2022 due to the security staff strike organized by Verdi. The airport announced that security checks will be closed.
For this reason, no passenger flights can be operated from the Hanseatic city on Tuesday. However, arrivals are still possible. It can be assumed that not many airlines will serve their connections one-way. Hamburg Airport therefore asks that all passengers who have bookings from/to Hamburg for Tuesday and/or Wednesday contact their airline and clarify how to proceed.
Last week, the strike by security personnel in the Free and Hanseatic City had a particularly severe effect. All Siko lines were closed and thus no departures could be carried out. Hamburg expects around 18.000 travelers to be affected by tomorrow, Tuesday. Verdi has also called on security personnel at other German commercial airports to stop work, so that with considerable restrictions in air traffic can be expected.
