A ground staff strike will paralyse Berlin Brandenburg airport on Wednesday


All passenger flights to and from Berlin Brandenburg Airport are set to be cancelled on Wednesday, 25 January, due to an all-day strike by ground and security staff.

The Ver.di union justified this strike action by the failure of negotiations around a collective labour agreement. Staff are demanding a pay rise of €500 per month. According to the union, 6,000 workers are affected by the ongoing negotiations.

Around 300 take-offs and landings with about 35,000 passengers had been scheduled.



  1. My flight is scheduled for tomorrow morning 25th and the children must go back to school so what are we going to do?

  2. If you really want to arrive, I would recommend making a alternative travel solution. A strike can be seen as “force majeure”, hence the school might understand.
