The French Directorate of French Aviation (DGAC) asked airlines on Thursday March 2 on Thursday March 7 and Wednesday, March 8 to some of their flights following a national strike notice, relayed by Several unions of air controllers, in opposition to the pension reform.

The DGAC wants companies to reduce their 20 % flight program in Paris-Charles-de-Gaulle, and 30 % in Paris-Orly, Beauvais, Bordeaux, Lille, Lyon, Nantes, Marseille, Montpellier, Nice and Toulouse.

Despite the implementation of a minimum service and the preventive reduction in requested traffic, the DGAC provides “disturbances and delays,” she said in a statement. The administration invites passengers who can “postpone their trip and learn from their airline to find out the state of their flight”.

The disturbances had already been important in the sky during the mobilization of February 16, while the DGAC had asked for cancellations similar to the companies. Unsopped strikes of air controllers had also disrupted theft in early February, against a background of mobilization against pension reform, although their unions did not call for strike.
