Flight disruption warning due to national strike in France

EasyJet has warned of delays and disruption due to a national strike starting in France today.

The industrial action is due to begin at 6pm local time tonight (Wednesday) and run until 5am on Friday.

The airline said: “Some air traffic control staff are joining the strike action and therefore like all airlines, our flights to and from French airports, as well as those flying in French airspace, could be affected.

“We expect that there will be delays and some disruption due to the industrial action, therefore we advise all customers to check the status of their flight on our flight tracker either on our mobile app or website.

“Please also be aware that public transport services may be affected by the strike.

“We recommend all customers allow plenty of extra time to get to the airport and consider alternative transport options where possible.”
