Flights to and from France are being affected by the second day of strike action by the country’s air traffic controllers.
Only 50 per cent of normal scheduled flights are operating to and from France’s main airports on Thursday (April 9) including Paris’ three airports, as well as Lyon, Nice, Marseille, Toulouse, Bordeaux and Nantes.
The 48-hour stoppage begin at 06.00 local time (05.00 GMT) on Wednesday (April 8), and runs until 06.00 local time on Friday (April 10).
The French Civil Aviation Authority had ordered airlines to reduce flights by 40 per cent on Wednesday and increased this to a 50 per cent reduction for Thursday.
Air France said it planned to operate its entire long-haul schedule on April 9, as well as 50 per cent of flights to and from Paris Charles de Gaulle, 25 per cent of services from Paris Orly, and 40% of flights from other French airports.
Hundreds of services have also been cancelled by other airlines such as Easyjet, Ryanair and British Airways.
Easyjet said it had to cancel 252 flights on Thursday due to the strike, and admitted that some flights on Wednesday had to be cancelled at such short notice that passengers had already boarded the aircraft.
