Germanwings Warns Bulgarian Passengers of Strike Actions.

Pilots from Germany's no-frills carrier Germanwings, which operates a number of flights from and to Bulgaria, will join the strike of their colleagues from Lufthansa, the largest airline in Germany, raising the prospect of delays and cancellations for passengers.

The Cockpit Association, which represents about 4,500 pilots at Lufthansa and two of its subsidiaries, said that 94 percent of members had voted to strike. Work would cease from 12:01 a.m. Monday to midnight Thursday and affect flights by Lufthansa as well as the Lufthansa Cargo unit and Germanwings.

The low-cost company has assured that it has drawn up an alternative schedule for the flights, which will be updated 24/7 and can be checked at the site of the company

Passengers, who have already booked a ticket during the strike period and want to change the timing, can fly on another Germanwings flight with no additional expenses charged.

The only requirement is that the ticket has been booked before midnight on February 16. Destinations of departing and arriving planes can not be changed.
