Memmingen (dpa / lby) – Despite the warning strike at Munich Airport, a few travelers in Bavaria can take off on a plane heading south on Friday. A total of five machines are to be processed at Memmingen Airport, which should actually have departed from the striked airport in Munich. A spokeswoman for the airport said. Today, passengers still go to Greece and Egypt, for example.

The terminal at Allgäu Airport was “a bit fuller than usual” due to the additional flights – but everything went according to plan in the morning, said the spokeswoman. A spokesman said that three flights originally planned in Munich should start at Nuremberg Airport in the morning.

The reason for the flight diversions is a warning strike at Munich Airport. The Verdi union had called for all-day work stoppages there, as well as at six other German airports. Munich Airport then stopped regular passenger operations on Friday. More than 700 take-offs and landings and around 90,000 passengers are affected.
