A FRENCH AIR TRAFFIC controllers’ strike is causing serious disruption to flights today. Flights between Ireland and France have been affected, with Aer Lingus, Air France and Ryanair cancelling flights between Ireland and Paris, Nice, Carcassonne, Biarritz, and Marseille.

Air France said that only short- and medium-haul flights are affected.

In Paris, one in five flights scheduled at Charles de Gaulle Airport and 50% at Orly have been cancelled.

Air traffic controllers are striking over plans to unify EU airspace and create one regional authority between France, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg. The switch to this airspace body comes under the “Single European Sky” plan which aims to streamline Europe’s air traffic control.

The strike is the third major airport strike in France this year, and is expected to run until early tomorrow.
