Eurowings cancels short-haul flights

Eurowings

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 (eurowings.com) 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.”
