Flights from Warsaw to Germany and Israel have been cancelled owing to strikes in the two countries, the press office of the capital’s Chopin Airport told PAP.

At midnight on Monday the EVG and Verdi railway unions in Germany brought public transport to a halt when they went out on strike.

Lufthansa, hours before the start of the strike, cancelled some flights citing technical problems with external service providers.

"Some flights from and to Germany were cancelled last week. These are LOT and Lufthansa flights to Stuttgart, Munich, Frankfurt," the Chopin Airport press office told PAP.

PLL LOT spokesman Krzysztof Moczulski tweeted that flights from Warsaw to Frankfurt, Stuttgart and Munich will be cancelled due to the strike in Germany.

On Monday, as a result of continuing protests in Israel against the government's changes to the judicial system, departures from Ben Gurion International airport in Tel Aviv have been suspended.

"We have information about the cancellation of flights from Tel Aviv to Warsaw," Chopin Airport said.

"The situation may change. We recommend that passengers follow the information provided by the carriers," the airport said.
