French air traffic controllers vote for six-day strike next week
20 June 2014 @ 16:36

France's two biggest air traffic controllers' unions have voted to go on strike from Tuesday in an announcement which will infuriate millions of holidaymakers.

Tourism officials estimate that 17.1 million Britons travel to France every year – many of the during the summer months. France attracts more foreign tourists than any other country in the world.

The six-day strike called by SNCTA and Unsa-ICNA comes amid an ongoing rail protest that is the biggest industrial action in years.

Air traffic controllers warned of "a heavy disruption" of flights from June 24 to 29. A minimum service of 50 per cent of scheduled flights will be maintained, according to France Info – but the controllers say they expect many cancellations.

ABTA, the British travel association, was meeting on Friday to work out whether all flights across French airspace would be affected, or just ones landing in France.
