Strikes hit Berlin and Helsinki flights


Almost all flights at Berlin’s airports cancelled on Friday
Strikes in Germany and Finland are causing chaos at airports across Europe.
Almost all flights at Berlin’s two airports are cancelled on Friday as ground staff conduct a 25-hour strike over pay.
The union Verdi confirmed on Thursday that it would strike from 04:00 local time on Friday until around 05:00 on Saturday, intensifying action after a number of recent stoppages.
But a spokesman for Berlin’s airport operator warned that “even after the end of the strikes on Saturday, there can be restrictions, cancellations and delays throughout the day”.
Meanwhile, a ground staff strike in Helsinki is scheduled for between 15:00 and 19:00 on Friday. Finnair has cancelled a third of all its flights for the day.
SAS is offering refunds to passengers on cancelled German and Finnish flights or the chance to change their booking.
