French strike to cause flight disruptions

Flights to France face disruption tomorrow due to a strike by public service workers including air traffic controllers.

The 24-hour walk-out is expected to hit aircraft flying to and from France and across the country.

The Directorate General for Civil Aviation is meeting this morning (Monday) and airlines will be advised whether services will need to be cancelled.

But Eurocontrol warned that the French strike was going ahead.

EasyJet urged passengers to check its website for affected flights.

“We would also like to advise you that public transport will likely be affected and you should consider this in your transportation plans to allow sufficient time to get to the airport,” the airline said.

A further update is due to be given at 10am this morning.
