O Mon dieu! Just as summer season kicks in to high gear (and timed to protest a speech by the EU’s transportation commissioner promoting cost-saving efficiencies in the European air traffic control system) the French air traffic controllers have announced three days of strikes beginning Tuesday. France’s civil aviation authority has asked airlines serving airports in Paris, Lyon, Nice, Marseilles, Toulouse and Bordeaux to halve their flight schedules through late Thursday.
If you are planning on traveling to, from or through France this week, you’ll want to check to see if your scheduled flight is among those cancelled.
Yesterday nine flights that were scheduled for Paris from North America were cancelled; as of this post, nine flights that were scheduled to depart today for Paris from North America have been cancelled. More are certain to follow as the week progresses. Check your Europe flight at www.FlightView.com to see if it’s still operating!
