Going on holidays to France? 18 flights were cancelled today

The strike is part of the ongoing row in France between trade unions and the government over new laws aimed at freeing up the labour market.

EIGHTEEN IRISH FLIGHTS to and from Ireland have been cancelled this morning due to industrial action by French air traffic controllers (ATC).

Ryanair and Aer Lingus have cancelled several flights due to the 13th strike by French air traffic controllers in 14 weeks.

Air France pilots are taking industrial action because of planned pay cuts and changes to their working conditions.

Aer Lingus has cancelled eight flights in and out of Ireland, while Ryanair has cancelled 10 flights.

Even if you’re not going to France, your flight may be delayed if it plans on using French airspace.

The strike is part of the ongoing row in France between trade unions and the government over new laws aimed at freeing up the labour market.

In a statement, Ryanair said:

Unfortunately, further flight delays and cancellations are likely and customers are asked to please monitor this notice which will be updated throughout the day.
Ryanair sincerely apologises for any inconvenience caused by these unjustified ATC disruptions which are entirely outside of our control.
