Copenhagen Airport hit by wildcat strike

Copenhagen's Kastrup airport was hit by a wildcat strike Monday morning, meaning planes left the airport empty, Swedish Radio News reports.

Ground staff at the airport, including security officers, staged the unofficial walkout, leaving thousands of passengers waiting.

Kastrup is a popular airport for residents in southern Sweden, as it lies just across the Öresund Bridge from Malmö.

Airlines were forced to shut their check-in desks and large queues formed at the security checks and x-ray machines.

The strikers went back to work after a few hours.
