Severe weather across Europe disrupted air travel at some of the region’s largest hubs, including Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam and Munich on Tuesday and hampered regional rail services in Germany.
The storms caused about 150 cancellations at Frankfurt, the continent’s third-largest airport. Deutsche Lufthansa AG, which uses the city as its main hub, listed 112 scrapped flights on its Website. The operator of Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport had warned passengers on Monday to expect delays and Air France-KLM Group canceled some services there. Eurocontrol said Zurich was among the most-affected airports.
Deutsche Bahn AG said it halted long-distance trains in Bavaria at about noon, where the storm also shut down Munich’s subway. In North Rhine-Westphalia, regional trains were halted at 11 a.m., with some high-speed services also disabled, the German rail operator said. The carrier limited long-distance train speeds to 140 kilometers (87 miles) per hour as a precaution in some parts of the country.
