Air Traffic Control (ATC) strike causes delays and cancellation of European flights

Published on : Friday, September 22, 2017

Chinese carrier Xiamen AirlinesATC strike resulted in the cancellation of more than 300 flights and the delays of many international bound flights of 130000 minutes.

 

 

These cancellations are necessary to save the flight programmes which are entirely dependent on on French air navigation services, given France’s geographical location.

 

 

The delays of the international brand can lead to exceed the crew exceeding their flight time in the  limitations and aircraft being unable to return to their home base.

 

During the French industrial action on 12 September 2017, there was no corroboration on the expected level of impact and heavy restrictions that were applied during the day.

 

 

It was between 2010‐2016, there were 217 ATC strike days in the European Union, which was one  disrupted day every nine days.

 

 

In about total, there were 278 interrupted days, after an ATC strike as flights had to be cancelled in move ahead and accumulated delays of the split over to the next day.

 

 

Since 2010 the overall impact of ATC strikes could cost about €12 billion to the European Union economy, which is associated with more than 140,000 jobs.
