A strike by security staff over pay hit two key regional airports in Germany for the second day in a row Friday and was set to resume next week.
At Hamburg airport, 147 flights were cancelled out of a total of 358 scheduled for Friday, a spokeswoman for the northern German airport told AFP.
The day before some 117 departures and arrivals had been cancelled in Hamburg.
At Cologne/Bonn airport in the west of Germany, 107 flights were scrapped, or more than half of those scheduled for the day, according to a statement on its website.
The Verdi services union called the strike for security staff responsible for checking passengers and hand luggage, in a dispute with management over pay deals.
The union said the strike would be suspended over the weekend before resuming Monday.
On Thursday, Duesseldorf airport had also been affected by the walkouts.
