Ryanair informed its customers that it has been forced to cancel over 250 flights on Wednesday (8th April) due to a French Air Traffic Control strike. Further cancellations and delays are likely and customers should check the status of their flight before leaving for the airport on the Ryanair.com website, where the latest information will be published.
Ryanair said, “We sincerely apologise to all customers affected by this unwarranted strike action and we call on the EU and French authorities to take measures to prevent any further disruption. It's grossly unfair that thousands of European travellers will once again have their travel plans disrupted by the selfish actions of a tiny number of French ATC workers. All affected customers have been contacted by email and text message and advised of their options (full refund, free transfer onto next available flight or free transfer onto an alternative flight routing)."
