The search for an analysis continues for the burden of workers at the airports due to the holiday period in Germany, which started with the closure of schools.
In the country, an analysis is sought for the expected travel intensity during the summer vacation.
According to Germany’s United Service Union (Ver.di), major airports such as Frankfurt, Hamburg or Berlin are suffering from a shortage of workers in all service areas on the ground, be it security checks or check-in.
German politicians propose that the federal police also take part in inspection passes at airports.
It is stated that airline companies will have to cancel more flights if there is no solution to the lack of personnel.
2,000 AIRLINE EMPLOYEES ARE REQUESTED FROM TURKEY
The German aviation industry wants to employ 2,000 people from Turkey at the airports in Germany, against the labor inconvenience.
The German Air Transport Economics Association (BDL) submitted a proposal to the Federal Ministry of Labor in May aimed at removing the legal obstacles. In the proposal, it was stated, “There is a labor shortage of 2,000 workers in the field of ground handling services. We see the recruitment of personnel from abroad as a way to meet this need for workers in the short term.”
According to BDL, personnel from Turkey speak German at the A2 level, have certified hazardous matters training that meets the requirements of the airline association IATA, and meet the needs of German reliability audits.
On the other hand, it was reported that the German authorities are expected to quickly issue special permits for the deployment of approximately 2,000 laborers from Turkey at German airports.
