The search for solutions continues for the suffering of workers at airports due to the holiday period in Germany with the closure of schools.
In the country, an analysis is sought for the expected travel intensity during the summer vacation.
According to the United Service Union of Germany (Ver.di), major airports such as Frankfurt, Hamburg or Berlin are plagued by a shortage of workers in all service areas on the ground, such as 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 WORKERS ARE REQUESTED FROM TURKEY
The German aviation industry wants to employ 2,000 people from Turkey at the airports in Germany, against the grievance of workers.
The German Air Transport Economics Association (BDL) submitted a proposal to the Federal Ministry of Labor in May aimed at removing the legal obstacles. The proposal stated, “There is a worker problem of 2,000 people 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 element trainings that meet 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 personnel from Turkey at German airports.
