French Air Traffic Controllers Set to Strike this week

PARIS — Air traffic controllers in France have planned three days of strikes beginning Tuesday, and their counterparts in several other European countries were expected to take more limited labor action this week, to protest a plan by the European Commission to accelerate the integration of air traffic management systems across the Continent.

France’s civil aviation authority made contingency plans over the weekend, asking airlines serving the country’s airports in Paris, Lyon, Nice, Marseille, Toulouse and Bordeaux to reduce their flight schedules by 50 percent from Tuesday morning until late Thursday in order to ease the burden on those airports, which were expected to face significant disruption.

Cain has generated reporting to determine who may be impacted by this event, and will be working to contact the traveler or administrator should re-accommodation be necessary.
