Your dream trip the French Riviera may become a logistical nightmare if you’re scheduled to fly tomorrow, as French air traffic controllers are due to strike, probably leading to the cancellation of up to 40% of regular flights entering French airspace.

The main air traffic controllers’ union, the SNCTA, is also pressing for industrial action on 16-18 April and 29 April to 2 May.

The row centers around working practices and retirement age, currently set at 59 for controllers.
