Passengers at Munich Airport must expect restrictions.
There will be another strike on Thursday.
Munich – The warning strikes at Munich Airport have begun.
From 8 a.m. on Thursday (March 23), employees stopped work at the security checkpoints at the airport.
A representative of the Verdi union, which has called for the warning strikes in the public sector, said he expects around two-thirds to be involved in the early shift, which normally involves around 250 to 300 employees.
According to the airport, the traffic jams were limited shortly after the start.
However, only individual security checkpoints were open and isolated flights were cancelled.
The warning strike is scheduled to last until 2 p.m., but will also have an impact beyond this time window.
Around 150 departures are scheduled between 8:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
Arrivals are not affected.

In the trade union district of Rosenheim, workers in waste management, street cleaning, hospitals and some daycare centers and administrations in the districts of Altötting, Mühldorf, Traunstein, Berchtesgadener Land, Rosenheim and Miesbach are to stop working.
Likewise in the clinics of the German pension insurance in the district of Miesbach and in Bad Aibling.
In addition, isolated warning strikes have been announced in other regions of Bavaria, where there had already been broad actions earlier in the week.
Waste management in Nuremberg is also affected on Thursday and Friday.
Nationwide collective bargaining for the public sector is currently underway.
The central demands are 10.5 percent more wages, but at least 500 euros more per month.
The third round of negotiations in the civil service is scheduled to begin on Monday.
