After effectively shutting down Berlin’s two largest airports this past Friday, the union representing the ground crew at those airports have announced they will conduct another 25-hour strike on Monday.
The cessation of ground crew services will begin at 4 a.m. on Monday morning, local time and will continue until Tuesday at 5 a.m.
Lufthansa has already announced it will cancel all flights with service to and from Frankfurt and Munich and the nation’s capital.
Friday’s strike led to the cancellation of more than 600 flights including thousands of tourism industry professionals who were in town for the world’s largest trade show, ITB.
