France. The French Industrial Action has been extended till 11/03/23 at 06.00 UTC

The air traffic controllers’ strike has been extended until 11/03/23 at 10am. For today, 8 March, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGAC) is asking airlines to reduce their flight schedules by 20% at Charles-de-Gaulle airport and by 30% at Orly, Beauvais, Lille, Lyon, Nantes, Marseille, Montpellier, Nice and Toulouse.

Airport fuelling services will also join the strike. The newest strikes in France, which usually only disrupt public transportation, may have an impact on drivers as well. Rolling roadblocks, roundabout protests, and blockades of oil refineries to stop the flow of fuel to filling stations are among the planned measures.

There may be some disruptions to aircraft operations in France as a result of Eurocontrol’s (The European Organisation for Safety of Air Navigation) announcement that minimum services would be imposed at several ATC centers from 18:00 March 6–07:00 March 8.

Allow extra time for travel in major cities. Confirm availability of public transport, as well as flight and rail travel arrangements for dates on which major strikes are planned.
Please avoid demonstrations and follow the advice of local authorities.
