French Air Traffic Controllers to strike again tomorrow

Millions of holiday-makers are facing flight cancellations and disruptions tomorrow as French Air Traffic Controllers are striking again.

It is the thirteenth strike in fourteen weeks and will affect flights into and out of France, as well as those that use French Airspace.

The EU is being urged to act to bring an end to the strikes, by requiring the unions to engage in binding arbitration.

Ryanair's Chief Marketing Officer is Kenny Jacobs: "Enough is enough, we’re like a broken record at this stage with so many French strikes.
