13th Jun 2022

Lufthansa, Germany’s flag carrier, and its budget unit, Eurowings cut flights due to staff shortages across the country. Over a thousand flights will be cancelled in July, 900 of which are those with Lufthansa. These are domestic and short-haul flights from Frankfurt and Munich. Eurowings also cut hundreds of flights for next month.

The cancellation will affect flights scheduled from Fridays to Sundays and is equavalent to Lufthansa’s 5% planned capacity on weekends.

“The entire aviation industry, especially in Europe, is suffering from bottlenecks and staff shortages. This is affecting airports, ground services, air traffic control and airlines,” said Lufthansa.

“Lufthansa and Eurowings have not made the decision lightly and regret the cancellations and the associated inconvenience for guests,” said Eurowings.
