Air traffic controllers to strike December 11-13 amid a nationwide transportation strike; flight disruptions expected



Unions representing air traffic controllers announced on Wednesday, December 11, that their staff will go on strike amid a nationwide strike affecting all forms of transportation. The strike action is expected to begin on Wednesday, December 11, at 18:00 (local time) and continue through Friday, December 13, at 05:00.

Flight delays and cancelations are to be expected at French airports during the strike period.
