Airports warn passengers before the start of the holidays

The airports in Düsseldorf and Cologne/Bonn ask for patience and advise passengers to be at the airport up to three hours before departure. For months now, waiting times have been very long at the two largest airports in North Rhine-Westphalia during the early morning and afternoon rush hours because there is a lack of staff at check-in and at security checkpoints. “With the autumn holidays, the already serious problem should become even clearer,” warns trade union secretary Özay Tarim from Verdi.

The queues were very, very long at Düsseldorf Airport on Thursday afternoon – i.e. outside of the rush hours on a normal working day. According to Tarim, he sees this as a gloomy omen for an extremely long wait at the start of the holiday weekend. (red/dpa)
