Thousands of Irish fans left stranded after Ryanair is forced to cancel 56 flights due to the ongoing French air traffic controllers strike




There was bad news for Irish fans looking to make their way to and from France tomorrow as Ryanair have been forced to cancel 56 flights due to the ongoing air traffic controllers strike.

The continuing strike action which has caused havoc for football fans across the continent, has led to Ryanair appealing to the European Commission to intervene in a dispute.

According to Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs: “These strikes by French ATC workers are becoming a weekly event by now, causing chaos for families wanting to take their summer breaks but also designed to upset the plans of football fans coming from far and wide to France to enjoy the Euros.”

“It is simply unacceptable that this situation is allowed to persist, and we regret that once again we have been forced to cancel a number of flights due to the selfish actions of these workers.”
