Air Berlin cancels dozens of flights

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

Germany's second-largest airline, Air Berlin, which declared bankruptcy last month after years of losses, was forced to cancel dozens of flights on Tuesday due to an unusually high number of pilots calling in sick.

On its website, Air Berlin cited “operative reasons” for the cancellations on Tuesday, and asked passengers to call a helpline and refrain from travelling to the affected airports.

German press estimated that over 100 national and international flights were to be grounded, affecting schedules at Berlin's Tegel airport, Düsseldorf, Munich and others.

Because the carrier no longer offers compensation for cancelled flights, customer advice centers recommended that people affected by the strike book replacements at their own expense.
