Ryanair, Europe’s only ultra-low cost airline (ULCC), today (11 June) confirmed it has been forced to cancel a further 250 flights tomorrow (Wednesday, 12th June) as a result of ongoing strikes by French air traffic controllers.
On Tuesday, Ryanair was forced to cancel over 200 flights (to/from France and flights that travelled through French airspace) while hundreds of other flights were delayed.
A French air traffic control strike planned for Thursday (13th June) has been postponed and Ryanair will plan to operate as normal from Thursday morning.
Ryanair’s Robin Kiely said:
“Ryanair was forced to cancel over 200 flights on Tuesday as this unwarranted strike action not only affected flights to and from France, but also flights travelling through French airspace. Regrettably, we have had to cancel a further 250 flights on Wednesday and we sincerely apologise to passengers, but the circumstances are entirely beyond our control.
