Airport Hamburg resumes flight operations

After the one-day warning strike at Hamburg Airport, the airport resumed flight operations on Saturday morning. The first machine to take off at 6:15 a.m. was a Eurowings plane for Zurich, according to the airport's website. The originally first take-off of a TAP Air Portugal machine to Lisbon was delayed by around an hour. The first landings from Istanbul and Lisbon took place shortly after 6:00 a.m.

"During the course of the day, the last effects of yesterday's strike should have leveled off again," said a spokeswoman for the airport in the morning. Due to rebookings from the previous day, a significantly higher occupancy rate can be expected for individual flights.

From Thursday 10:00 p.m. nothing worked at Hamburg Airport. Without exception, there were no take-offs or landings. The warning strike by employees in the federal and municipal public services and other parts of the airport officially ended on Friday at 10 p.m. However, Hamburg Airport only resumed flight operations, which officially lasted until 11 p.m., on Saturday morning. 95 take-offs and 99 landings are planned.

According to the airport, 253 flights and around 32,000 passengers were affected by the warning strike. There were further walkouts at the airports in Frankfurt, Munich, Hanover, Stuttgart, Bremen and Dortmund. According to estimates by the airport association ADV, almost 300,000 passengers nationwide were affected by more than 2,300 flight cancellations.

Instead, the strike action is now shifting: a day-long warning strike in the public sector has paralyzed several recycling centers in Hamburg. Nothing will be accepted at the affected farms, said a spokesman for the Verdi union on Saturday morning. "There's nothing. Nothing can be delivered there either.” Affected customers would have shown understanding. The participation of the colleagues at the courts is good.

The recycling centers Feldstraße in the St. Pauli district, Wilma-Witte Stieg 6 in Wandsbek, Rondenbarg 52 in Altona and Neuländer Kamp 6 in Harburg are closed. There are also closures or restrictions elsewhere, and a detailed overview is still missing. Street cleaning and container transport are also affected. A final rally is planned for around 1 p.m. on Feldstraße.

The city cleaning itself had previously announced that due to the restrictions in the recycling yards, no trucks or vans could be processed. It is also not possible to accept larger quantities of waste.

With the warning strike, the employees want to emphasize their demands in the ongoing collective bargaining dispute between the federal and local governments. The second round of negotiations is scheduled for next Wednesday and Thursday. Verdi and the civil servants' association dbb are demanding 10.5 percent more money for the approximately 2.5 million public sector employees nationwide, but at least 500 euros more per month.
