Five Lufthansa flights out of Prague cancelled due to strike

On Monday, five out of eleven flights scheduled from Prague’s Ruzyně airport to Germany were cancelled due to a strike by Lufthansa pilots. Lufthansa connections to the German hub airport of Frankfurt are the most affected by the strike. A spokeswoman for Prague airport told the Czech news agency ČTK that at Ruzyne Airport things were running smoothly despite the cancellations. The German pilot strike has lead to an increase of passengers on competitors’ planes. Czech Airlines alone have seen hundreds of new passengers, with reservations for flights to Germany doubled for this week.
