Despite two-day strike, Germanwings aims get over 80 percent of all passengers booked to their destination

Despite the announcement of a pilot strike by the VC Cockpit union for the period between tomorrow (Thursday, 12 February) 11:00pm (UTC) and Friday (13 February) 22.59 (10:59 p.m.) UTC, Germanwings will get over 80 percent of all passengers booked to their destination. More than 60 percent of all scheduled flights are being offered. Management pilots of the German airline will take their place in the cockpit to ensure this is the case.

Germanwings has also leased aircraft and crews from other airlines and is rebooking its own passengers on flights with Lufthansa, Swiss and Austrian Airlines.

In the meantime, the replacement flight schedule for tomorrow, Thursday, 12 February, can also be viewed online on the website at www.germanwings.com. The replacement flight plan for Friday, February 13, will be published on Wednesday evening. All passengers are therefore asked to check the current status of their flights on www.germanwings.com/flightstatus where the latest information will be posted regularly. If your flight is withdrawn, you can cancel or rebook your flight free of charge at www.germanwings.com or via the call centre. Passengers on withdrawn flights can also rebook to connections by rail within Germany.

Vouchers for the train can be issued in the call centre or at Germanwings airports. Routes served by Eurowings are not affected by the strike as their pilots are not employed within the Lufthansa group collective agreement.

Germanwings apologises for any inconvenience caused to passengers by this industrial action, and is striving to keep its effects to a minimum.
