Lufthansa, the country’s largest carrier, said it would cancel short- and long-haul flights from Munich airport tomorrow until 1200 GMT and 1300 GMT, respectively.
Long-haul flights to Frankfurt are so far not expected to be affected, the airline said.
In a separate statement, Lufthansa’s budget unit Eurowings said it had suspended flight operations at the airports of Hamburg, Berlin, Hanover, Dortmund, Duesseldorf, Cologne and Stuttgart.
German railway operator Deutsche Bahn also warned of severe disruptions in the northern part of the country, saying that long-distance trains had stopped operating there. — Reuters
