Planes to be grounded in France due to aviation strike
Massive flight cancellations are expected to happen from Monday to Thursday in France due to a strike of the airlines’ employees. All the airports in France might be affected.
Air France airline informs on its official website about the cancellations and asks the passengers to keep an eye on their website for the latest updates.
“We are compelled to reduce our flight schedule accordingly and we do not exclude "on the spot" cancellations as well as delays. We certainly regret this situation and are doing our utmost to reduce the inconvenience caused by the action,” say the Air France’s officials.
The passengers who are due to travel to/from France during 6 to 9 February, 2012, should check the status of their flight with the airline before getting to the airport.
The Unions which represent the aviation workers are protesting a law which will require the employees to inform 48 hours in advance before going on a strike action.
