General Strike in France - 19-22 October 2010


A general strike affecting aviation workers has been confirmed in France on 19th October 2010. The strike will commence the evening of 18th October 2010 and last until 22nd of October 2010 with significant level of disruption to be expected on the 19th.


Some Air traffic controllers trade unions will take part in the general strike launched in France on Tuesday October 19.


As a result, French Civil Aviation Authorities have limited the number of flights for all airlines.


Therefore, on October 19, Air France plan to operate 100 % of the long-haul flights, and have had to cancel some domestic and european flights.


Air France commercial services will do their utmost to inform you of flight cancellations and offer you alternative solutions where applicable, either on a flight with Air France, with KLM through Amsterdam, or with one of the SkyTeam alliance partners.


Please check your flight status before you travel to the airport. You can find live departures and arrivals information on the homepage by clicking on « Flight and Destination information ».
