Air Traffic Control Strikes

ATC strikes 19h00 8 May until 06h00 10 May. First wave of the strike ‘season’…

Nicely timed for the French 8 May holiday, into Thursday and possibly a ‘pont’ on Friday - followed by a weekend…call me cynical :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: So tough for the poor darlings…

With this happening every year - do you think it is now just part of their annual leave?


Yep - I think you’re right Mat :wink: Unlikely they’ll call any strikes in July / August though as they need to go on hols themselves :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

‘‘The senate report found that between 2004 and 2016 they were on strike for a total of 254 days, far more than controllers in any other European country. Second were controllers in Greece, with 46 days, followed by Italy, with 37 days and Germany, with four days.’’
