FRANKFURT (AFP) - Germany's largest airport, Frankfurt, is bracing for travel delays Friday due to a scheduled wage strike by security personnel, the airport's operator Fraport said.

"Due to strike action planned by security staff for Friday, February 21, flight disruptions and cancellations are likely to occur at Frankfurt Airport," it said on its website.

"Passengers are advised to check their airline's website and the traffic reports before travelling to the airport and allow extra time for their journey."

Service industry union Verdi called on members employed by private security contractors to stay away from work between 0100 and 2200 GMT on Friday.
