Information for travellers during air traffic controller strike

Text by FRANCE 24

Latest update : 2010-07-21

An air traffic controller strike in France will cause acute disruption to flights out of Paris’s two main airports Wednesday. The French civil aviation authority has instructed passengers to contact airlines for further information before travelling.

 

The French Civil Aviation Management (DGAC) has indicated that disruptions are expected “across France” due to the strike.
 
The first flights to be hit were on Tuesday night, and a return to the normal flight schedule is expected Thursday morning.

The DGAC also reported that severe weather conditions could further disrupt air traffic, as storms are forecast to hit France Wednesday.

The state of air traffic in France’s main airports:

Charles de Gaulle: Cancellation of one out of every five flights; seven flights were cancelled Tuesday night. 80% of short and medium-haul Air France flights are expected to take off on Wednesday.

Orly: Cancellation of half of scheduled flights; 50% of short and medium-haul Air France flights are expected to take off. EasyJet cancelled a dozen flights to Rome, Rabat, Budapest, Venice, and Toulouse on Tuesday night

Nice Côte d'Azur: 9% of flights cancelled.

For further information: Travellers can look up their flight and follow the progression of air traffic on the Paris airports Web site. The site also has an email alert function that allows passengers to receive an email if their flight time is changed or if the flight is cancelled.

All of Air France’s long-haul flights are expected to depart as scheduled.
