Airline passengers face chaos due to French strike

22 September 2010

Another 24-hour general strike over the Sarkozy government’s proposal to raise the state pension age will see French air and rail services severely affected on Thursday 23 September.

‘Direction Generale d’Aviation Civile ‘(DGAC), the country’s civil aviation authority, has asked airlines to reduce flights into and out of Paris’s Orly Airport by 50%. Flights to and from Charles de Gaulle and other French airports are to be cut by 40%.

Airlines are likely to try to keep long-haul services running so most of the disruption will probably affect short-haul services disproportionately.
