24-26 Jun: French ATC Strike - Called Off 24:00hrs Wed 25 June

18:30 Update: French ATC Strike       French ATC Strike called off at 24:00hrs Wed 25 Jun

Wednesday 25th June 

The slot delays caused by the French/Belgian ATC strikes today are continuing to cause severe disruptions for our customers. ATC delays of up to 4 hours are now being allocated to Ryanair flights operating to/from France, and also flying over France.

We expect that these delays will continue to build through the evening as the backlog of delayed flights rises. In order to minimise disruptions on the rest of our network Ryanair has been forced regrettably to cancel approx. 15% of Ryanair’s total schedule of over 1,600 flights today.

Belgian ATC have confirmed that they will strike between 18:00 and 20:00hrs (Belgian time) which will cause further disruptions to our flights.

All customers affected by these cancellations will be contacted by email and SMS later today and offered a choice of reaccommodation on later flights or full refunds.

Ryanair apologises sincerely for any delays or inconvenience caused to our customers by this unnecessary and regrettable French/Belgian ATC strike.

Thursday 26th June

We have been advised that the French ATC strike has been cancelled with effect from 24:00hrs Wednesday 25th Jun. All Ryanair scheduled flights on Thursday 26th will operate as normal. All booked customers should proceed to the departure airport as normal. 

List of cancelled flights: Wednesday 25th June

List of cancelled flights: Tuesday 24th June


NOTE: If your booking includes a flight which has not been cancelled you will be UNABLE to transfer that flight to an alternative date online. To transfer any such flight free of charge please contact a call centre.
