France to Extend Flight Reductions at Paris-Orly As Strikes Continue
(Bloomberg) -- France’s civil aviation authority has asked airlines to extend flight cuts at several airports across the country as national strikes against President Emmanuel Macron’s pension reform continue.
A new round of strikes and demonstrations are planned for Thursday, leading to a 30% capacity cut at Orly airport outside of Paris, and a 20% reduction of air traffic at Marseille-Provence, Toulouse-Blagnac and Lyon-Saint Exupéry airports, the DGAC said in a statement.
