France: Flight disruptions likely at Paris-Orly Airport (ORY) December 17

Air traffic controllers strike causes disruptions at Paris-Orly Airport (ORY) as of December 17; confirm flight reservations



Air traffic controllers at Paris' Orly Airport (ORY) have called for a strike on Tuesday, December 17, as part of an ongoing nationwide social movement. As such, the national civil aviation authority has asked airlines operating at ORY to reduce their flights by 20 percent on Tuesday. Flight delays and cancelations are expected throughout the day.


Nationwide strikes, ongoing since December 5 to denounce the government's proposed universal pension reform, have caused significant disruptions to all forms of transportation across France. Strikes may continue for an undetermined time if the government does not abandon its proposed pension reform plan.


Travelers flying via ORY are advised to confirm flight reservations and to contact their airline for additional information.
