German Lufthansa will suspend 876 flights on Wednesday when the pilots in the company undertake another strike, the 14th in a row.
How many flights to and from Norway could be affected is unclear.

The strike will affect around 100,000 passengers, and there are 51 long-haul routes among the 876 flights they are suspending, according to a statement from Lufthansa.

Avinor cannot say how many flights to and from Norway that may be affected by the strike.

– We have no record of this. The travelers must adhere to the information they receive from the company, says the communications manager Kristian Løksa in Avinor .

Lufthansa promises to help travelers find space with other airlines or alternative modes, but for many this is probably difficult.

The pilot strike in Lufthansa is the 14th in a row, after pay negotiations between the company and the 5,400 pilots broke down
