A spokeswoman for Lufthansa spokeswoman told dpa that check-in systems on the airline's website and at the counter, as well as boarding, were affected at Germany's biggest airport. Some flights were delayed or would have to be canceled because of the problems.

It was still possible to check-in using mobile browsers on smartphones or tablets, and the Lufthansa app.

The technical problems were caused by external IT service providers, according to dpa. Lufthansa asked travelers to check the status of their flights and said it was working with high-pressure to resolve the issues.

Last month, a cable damage in Frankfurt caused Lufthansa's computer systems to fail, leading to flight cancellations and delays worldwide.

Sunday's problems came a day before a national strike in Germany is set to bring the country's traffic to a standstill with airport, train and public transportation employees protesting for higher salaries in a one-day walkout on Monday.

Air traffic was already canceled on Sunday at Germany's second-biggest airport in Munich because of the upcoming strike.
