Many flights from Dublin cancelled today as a result of Lufthansa pilots’ strike

Make sure your flight is not affected before you travel.

A number of flights to and from Dublin Airport have been cancelled as a result of the Lufthansa pilots’ strike on Wednesday.

Eight Lufthansa flights between Dublin Airport and Munich and Frankfurt are amongst just under 900 flights cancelled by the airline on Wednesday, approximately one third of their entire list of scheduled flights on the day.


The strike, called for by the pilots union Cockpit (VC) is the latest episode in a long-running dispute between Lufthansa and the pilots’ union, although the strike announcement concerns Lufthansa operated flights only.

Flights operated by Germanwings, Eurowings, Air Dolomiti, Austrian Airlines, SWISS and Brussels Airlines are not affected by the strike measures and will continue to operate normally.

Lufthansa says it regrets the inconvenience caused by the VC strike and will try to minimise the impact on its passengers.

The strike is set to continue until 23:29 German local time (22:29 GMT) on Thursday; passengers who might be affected can check the status of their flights here.
