LOW-COST airline Ryanair has announced huge cuts to its scheduled flights to and from Spain on Tuesday, October 10 in reaction to the planned air traffic controllers strike in France.
It will mean even more misery in the skies for travellers who have been hit hard recently by the Ryanair fiasco and then the collapse of Monarch Airlines that left thousands of passengers needing repatriation home.
All airlines are warning that flights in Europe could be affected by a national strike in France from the evening of October 9 until the morning of October 11.
The CFDT, CGT, FO and Unsa unions have urged the country’s 5.4million public service workers to walk out in protest over changes to France’s labour laws.
France’s Civil Aviation Authority has requested airlines to reduce their flight schedules into the country by 30% on Tuesday, but the action will also impact on aircraft flying over French airspace.
EasyJet has said, “As a large percentage of easyJet’s flights fly over France, this will have an impact on our flights to and from French airports, as well as those flying over French airspace.
“We are doing everything possible to minimise the impact of the strike on our customers, and have taken the decision to proactively cancel a number of flights, allowing customers to reorganise their journeys.”
The airline has said they will communicate directly to customers affected via SMS and email using the details provided at the time of booking.
Jet2 also released a statement saying, “Jet2.com has been made aware of industrial action supported by the Air Traffic Services in France between 9th October 18:00 BST and 11th October 03:00 BST. As a result, flights operating to France or through France airspace may be subject to disruption. Jet2.com regrets any disruption caused by these circumstances that are completely beyond our control.
“Whilst some delays may be experienced, we will be working constantly to bring forward any delayed departures and get flights underway at the earliest possible opportunity.
The Ryanair flights affected on Tuesday, October 10 will be:
