Industrial Action in France Brings Misery to Passengers And Airlines

Published on : Tuesday, October 10, 2017

European Regions AirlineFrench air traffic controllers are staging a strike today at several airports in France, causing chaos for passengers travelling to and from France and also affecting flights within Europe that use the French airspace.

 

The strike, taking place between evening of Monday 9 October and morning of Wednesday 11 October, was called by several French air traffic controllers’ unions in support of a national call for strike.

 

Paula Bangle, General Manager Business Development, Membership and Communications at ERA, comments: “The strike action in France this week is causing misery to thousands of passengers as their travel plans are disrupted. The impact on airlines, businesses and passengers is considerable and costly. Airlines not flying to France will also be effected as they will have to fly around French airspace adding time, delays and fuel costs.”

 

ERA encourages greater communication and discussions between all stakeholders involved to avoid this type of action and urges the EU and national governments to act now to stop any future disruption.
