France: Air traffic controllers will strike on 10 October

Eurocontrol reported on 8 October that all five French air traffic control unions are expected to strike at some point on 10 October beginning at 4 am GMT.

Conditions will change throughout the day as staffing levels change, and different airports and air routes will be affected in different capacities.

Both arrivals and departures will likely be impacted by the strike, so any flights into or out of airports in France could be impacted.

Travellers should check with their travel providers or airlines for delays and cancellations. Impact is expected.

The planned strike of air traffic controllers across all of Europe was cancelled. As of press time, only those in France are planning industrial action.
