Strike at airports on Monday: Civil Aviation asks to cancel 30% of flights at Paris-Orly and 20% at Marseille
The French sky will be further disturbed next week. The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGAC) asked airlines to cancel Monday 30% of their flights at Paris-Orly and 20% at Marseille-Provence, due to the strike movement of air traffic controllers against the reform of retreats. “Despite these preventive measures, disruptions and delays are nevertheless to be expected,” warned the DGAC on Friday.
The cancellation rate at Orly on Monday is on the rise compared to this weekwhen the authorities had requested the cancellation of 20% of flights departing from the Ile-de-France airport.
To limit traffic disruption, minimum service provisions will be applied in certain en-route air navigation centers (CRNAs, air traffic control centres) and airport navigation services.
The DGAC invites passengers who can do so to postpone their trip and to inquire with their airline to find out the status of their flight.
