Many flights between Germany and Austria will also be affected by the German traffic strikes that start next weekend. Several flight cancellations are expected on both Sunday and Monday. The strikes also affect rail transport.
According to information from Vienna Airport, all twelve flights between Munich and Vienna will be canceled on Sunday. According to current information, 54 of the 91 scheduled flights between Vienna and Munich, as well as Frankfurt, Nuremberg, Stuttgart, Düsseldorf, Hamburg and Cologne, will be canceled on Monday. In concrete terms, this concerns 27 outgoing and 27 return flights.
There are flights to and from Germany that may be affected by the strikes in Vienna, Salzburg, Innsbruck, Linz and Klagenfurt. In Germany, other modes of transport will also be struck on Monday.
Further failures possible
According to Vienna Airport, flights to and from Berlin, Hanover and Leipzig have not yet been affected, but further effects cannot be ruled out. In total, Vienna Airport handles about 600 flights per day, of which 12 will be canceled on Sunday and 54 on Monday.
All travelers are advised to check with their airline or tour operator regarding their air travel. The homepages of the respective airlines and airports also provide an overview of current arrivals and departures. Since most passengers have already been informed in advance by the airlines, no special effects are expected in terminal operations at Vienna Airport for either day, an airport spokesman said.
Problems also on rails
Enormous effects are also expected in rail traffic. All train connections via the Deutsches Eck are affected. A shuttle service will be set up every two hours. Trips can take up to three hours longer. Trains to and from Germany will be shortened or cancelled.
