Air France faces fresh walkouts

Air France faces four more days of strikes from next week as three unions announced fresh walkouts.

The latest industrial action is planned for May 3, 4, 7 and 8 as part of a long-running pay dispute with the French flag carrier.

The new strikes called by unions representing employees from pilots and cabin crew to ground staff, come ahead of a consultation the airline on management salary proposals.

Air France has suffered 11 days of strikes since February 22 at a cost of more than €220 million, which chief executive Jean-Marc Janaillac admitted was jeopardising the airline’s future.

The staff consultation on a 7% pay rise over four years starts today and runs until May 4.
