Technical staff at German airline Lufthansa began a three-day strike this morning as part of an ongoing pay dispute, BTA reported, citing DPA. 

The protest actions started as planned at 06:00 local time, said the chief negotiator of the "Verdi" union, Marvin Resinski. 

Passenger flights will not be affected this time. 

According to the union, employees and trainees from the divisions "Lufthansa Technik", "Lufthansa Aviation Training" and "Lufthansa Technical Training" joined the nationwide protest. 

The airline said the strike was unlikely to "have a major impact on the schedule" for today. 

However, passengers are urged to check the status of their flights regularly. 

Lufthansa workers have already held two one-day strikes this month, each causing the cancellation of hundreds of flights.

Staff recently rejected a new offer from company management as unsatisfactory after two days of collective bargaining.
