Frankfurt Airport, Germany's busiest air transport hub, is unlikely to see relief for a crippling staff shortage in the coming months, its operator Fraport (FRAG.DE) said.
"The problem will not get smaller going forward, even though we are hiring. I say that very openly," said Fraport Chief Executive Stefan Schulte told a media briefing in Frankfurt on Tuesday evening.
He said disruptions due to a lack of workers would continue for the next two or three months.
Fraport has already rehired nearly 1,000 new ground services employees after cutting about 4,000 during the pandemic.
