The resignation of scores of workers due to the coronavirus pandemic in Germany is causing excessive congestion at the airports in the country, resulting in flight cancellations.

To tackle the problem, Europe's biggest economy announced that it would pay Turkish baggage workers who work at the country's airport 2,500 euros monthly; however, the announcement did not receive enough attention.

Germany-based Rheinische Post asked: "Where are the assistants coming from Turkey for the airports in Germany?"

It emphasized that "at least 2,000 temporary workers should come from Turkey to alleviate the chaos at German airports."

The lack of staff at German airports leads to cancellations of flights and long waits for passengers.

"But so far no one has come," said the news platform. "Why did this happen? Why have people in Turkey been sorely disappointed?"

German Interior Minister Nancy Faeser announced that they "allowed companies to recruit auxiliary workers from abroad, especially Turkey."

Faeser said that they would issue residence and work permits for workers brought from abroad, and stated that these workers would be employed in the luggage department.
