Due to strikes scheduled at both airports on Monday due to work stoppages in the German transportation sector, EgyptAir announced the cancellation of a number of its flights from and to Cairo-Munich/Frankfurt on Sunday and Monday.

EgyptAir flight MS787 from Cairo to Munich on March 26 and EgyptAir flight MS788 from Munich to Cairo on March 27 both had to be cancelled.

According to EgyptAir, passengers on these flights will be transferred to the earliest flights feasible.

Moreover, on Monday, March 27, EgyptAir cancelled its flight MS786 from Frankfurt to Cairo.

On Monday, March 27, it also cancelled flight MS785 from Cairo to Frankfurt, but said that passengers who had reservations for that route might take MS785 on Tuesday, March 28.

Any customers who had reservations on these cancelled flights were urged to get in touch with the company's phone centre for more information.

In order to protest the country's high inflation, German unions called a one-day strike on Monday in the transportation industry, including airports and trains.

The busiest airport in Germany, Frankfurt, said on Monday that all scheduled flights will be cancelled.

Similar announcements were made at Munich Airport, the second busiest airport in the nation, about the cancellation of passenger flights on Sunday and Monday.
