French ATC Strike.

Air Traffic Controllers (ATC) in France are planning industrial action from 1900hrs (local time) today, Monday 17th March, until 0600hrs on Wednesday 19th March.

We have been advised that numerous French public service providers will take strike action across France tomorrow, Tuesday 18th March, for 24 hours. This will include Air Traffic Controllers (ATC), which will mean flights to and from France, as well as flights that fly over French airspace, will be affected.

The ATC action actually begins this evening (Monday 17th March) at 1900 local time and will last until 0600hrs on Wednesday 19th March.

As a result of the strike action, all airlines have been asked to cancel a number of flights into and out of France. Additionally we would also like to advise you that public transport across France will be affected too and you should consider this in your plans to allow sufficient time to get to/from the airport.

We (GTM) have already checked our systems and are in the process of contacting all affected travellers.
