FRANKFURT, April 23
FRANKFURT, April 23 (Reuters) - The small German airport of Luebeck, near Hamburg, has filed for insolvency and a local court has appointed a preliminary administrator, German media reported on Wednesday.
A statement on the website for the airport, which is served by low-cost carriers such as Ryanair, said the around 100 people employed had not received their pay for April.
Neither the airport nor the court was immediately available for comment.
