Berlin (VNA) – Vietnam Airlines’ flights to and from Frankfurt have not been affected by a strike staged by the public service workers’ union in Germany which stalled operation in many airports, according to Chief of Vietnam Airlines in Germany Ngo Tri Hung. 

However, the Vietnam Airlines official recommended that transit-passengers through Frankfurt should check thoroughly if any other carriers might be affected by the strike. 

As the strike has spread to six airports - Munchen, Frankfurt, Düsseldorf, Cologne/Bonn, Dortmund and Hannover, the Frankfurt-based Lufthansa airline had to cancel nearly 900 flights on April 27, affecting around 87,000 passengers. 

Munchen airport was hardest hit, with only 90 flights operated during the day while 545 flights were cancelled.-VNA
