Eurowings cancels short-haul flights


Eurowings has cancelled hundreds of short-haul and domestic flights on Thursday (October 27) due to a strike by cabin crew.

The UFO union called the 24-hour industrial action for Eurowings staff based at Dusseldorf and Hamburg airports to run from 00.00 to 24.00. This has caused the Lufthansa-owned carrier to run “virtually no domestic flights” on Thursday.

Around 400 flights have been cancelled, although Eurowings’ long-haul flights are still operating. Another 150 services are likely to be delayed by the strike.

Eurowings has published an amended flight schedule on its website ( for Thursday with details of all services that are still operating, including long-haul services.

“Customers whose flights are affected by the strike action can cancel or rebook their flights free of charge,” said the airline in a statement. “In this case, Eurowings will also provide vouchers enabling customers travel by rail instead.”
