The one-day strike, which is due to a pay dispute, will affect Frankfurt, Munich, Dusseldorf and Hamburg.

As a result, only about 20 of more than 1,650 scheduled short-haul flights will operate, long-haul services will also be hit.

Passengers affected by cancellations can re-book for free, Lufthansa said.
