6/11/2013

Due to a strike amongst French air traffic controllers, flights to and from France are affected. Passengers have the same consumer protection regarding delayed and cancelled flights in a strike as usual.

Sometimes a cancelled and delayed flights due to a strike counts as extraordinary circumstances. This could limit your rights to financial compensation as a traveller. A strike amongst airport staff is not that common, but it is important to remember that every case of compensation claim is assessed case by case.
