Flights and train services to and from France will face more disruption on Thursday (6 April) as the latest national strike takes place across the country.
Transport workers are set to walk out again as part of a general strike held in protest at plans by the French government to increase the pension age from 62 to 64.
Civil aviation regulator DGAC has asked airlines to reduce their flights by 20 to 25 per cent at some French airports on Thursday.
Air France said it planned to operate all long-haul flights and services from its Paris Charles de Gaulle hub, as well as nearly 80 per cent of flights to and from “certain” French airports.
“Delays and last-minute cancellations cannot be ruled out,” added Air France in a statement. “The flight schedule is being updated and customers affected by cancelled flight are notified individually by SMS, email or via the Air France application.”
Other airlines, including British Airways and easyJet, said they would have to “adjust” their schedules and make some cancellations to services to and from France.
Cross-border train operator Eurostar said it planned to run a “near normal” schedule to France on Thursday with the cancellation of just two services between London and Paris on the day.
France’s SNCF said that “certain lines” operated by SNCF Voyageurs would also be “partially disrupted” by the strike on Thursday.
