Eurowings, a low-cost aviation company of German airline Lufthansa, has canceled more than 170 flights scheduled for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday due to a strike by air hosts on a wage dispute.

On Sunday, the German company Eurowings has provided information about canceled flights on its website, noting that it is working to reduce the minimum disruption to passengers, and that more than a thousand flights will operate according to the schedule.

“Air crew strike most likely affect Eurowings flights inside Germany at several airports including Cologne Bonn, Hamburg, Munich, Stuttgart and Düsseldorf”

The German news network noted that the decision to cancel will most likely affect flights inside Germany at several airports including Cologne Bonn, Hamburg, Munich, Stuttgart and Düsseldorf.

The Aviation Hosts Association has called for a strike on the grounds of a dispute over the opportunity to work part-time for the German Airlines (Eurowings), which provides about 30 of the 140 Euros, both of which are owned by Lufthansa.

On Friday, German cabin crew union UFO had called on flight assistants to go on strike for 72 hours starting December 30. Tensions have been building due to disagreements concerning regulations on part-time work.

Daniel Flohr, UFO’s vice-chairman, warned on Monday that there was the possibility of extending the strike past three days at short-notice if no agreement is reached. Speaking to Germany’s broadcaster ZDF’s Morgenmagazin Flohr added that “we don’t want that.”

German wings operates flights for Eurowings. Around 30 airplanes out of Eurowings’ fleet of 140 belong to Germanwings.
