The call for strike action by several French air traffic controllers’ unions is disrupting air traffic on Wednesday and Thursday April 8-9, 2015. The DGAC (French Civil Aviation Authority) has requested airlines to adapt their flight schedule to and from certain French airports.

On Thursday April 9,


• Air France expects to operate all its long-haul flights to and from Paris.


• Air France expects to operate half its medium-haul flights to and from Paris-Charles de Gaulle
• HOP ! Air France expects to operate 25% of its flights to and from Paris-Orly
• HOP ! Air France expects to operate approximately 40% of its flights to and from French provincial airports

For customers with connections to or from a long-haul flight, whose medium-haul flight is cancelled, Air France is doing all it can to offer rerouting solutions.

There may be long delays on all flights.

On the short-haul and medium-haul network, there may be last-minute delays and cancellations. The Company recommends customers to postpone their trip to after 10 April, at no extra cost.

Airport teams and commercial staff remain mobilized to inform customers and minimize the inconvenience this strike action may cause.
