UPDATE: Late Wednesday afternoon, Lufthansa Airlines said in an update on social media that its operations on Friday, in addition to Thursday, will be limited to “10 to 20 per cent of our flight schedule” due to the airport security staff strike in Germany.


Flights from Germany’s busiest airport have been cancelled to Pearson Airport in Mississauga due to a strike.

Airlines have cancelled two of the five flights scheduled tomorrow (March 7) to bring travellers from Frankfurt Airport in Germany to Pearson, Pearson Airport said in a post on X.

The large strike of security staff is expected to halt all planned departures at Germany’s busiest airport on Thursday, according to a Reuters story.

The airport’s operator, Fraport, asked all passengers starting their journey in Frankfurt not to come to the airport on March 7.

“The strike will cause major disruptions and flight cancellations throughout the day. Security checkpoints will remain closed,” Frankfurt Airport said in a post on X.

People departing from Frankfurt Airport will not be able to pass through the legally required security checks.

“We advise all originating passengers to avoid coming to the airport. Please contact your airline or travel operator for information regarding your flight,” the airport wrote.

As always, travellers heading to Pearson should check their flight status before heading out.
