Bad news for holiday makers as Ryanair cancel 75 flights

There could be even more strikes in the next few days.

Ryanair have been forced to cancel 75 flights that were scheduled to take place on Thursday and things could get even worse because the French air traffic control unions are planning four strikes in total throughout the coming week.


The 75 flights are both to/from and over France.

Here's their statement in full;

"We regret to advise customers that due to an air traffic control strike in France on 2nd June 2016, we have been forced to cancel the flights listed below. Customers will be updated on their flight status via email and/or the mobile phone number provided at time of booking. You may also monitor your flight status online: click here.

Here's the full list of flights affected.


Unfortunately, further flight delays and cancellations are likely and customers are asked to please monitor this notice which will be updated throughout the day. Ryanair sincerely apologises for any inconvenience caused by these unjustified ATC disruptions which are entirely outside of our control.

Customers are being advised to check with the airline in the coming days with regards to the specific flights that are being cancelled.

French ATC unions have announced that further strikes will be planned to not only affect tourists going on their summer holidays, but that any industrial action will be coordinated to directly target the European Championships that are being held in France between 10 June and 10 July.

Ryanair has asked the European Commission to intervene on the strikes that are being undertaken by the French air-traffic control unions.  The airline has repeatedly called upon the European Commission to introduce measures which would alleviate the impact of such of ATC strikes on consumers.
