Announcement from Air France:
SOCIAL MOVEMENT OF CERTAIN PARIS AÉROPORT STAFF FROM JUNE 30 TO JULY 3, 2022
Update: June 30, 2022, 4:30 p.m. local Paris time.
A call for a strike has been launched by some Paris Aéroport staff for the days from June 30 to July 3, 2022. For the day of July 1, the General Directorate of Civil Aviation (DGAC) has asked airlines to reduce their flight schedule departing from and arriving at Paris – Charles de Gaulle from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Consequently, Air France is forced to adapt its program to and from Paris CDG and plans to operate: – all of its long-haul flights, – almost 90% of its short and medium-haul flights. Our flight schedule for this day is being updated. However, last-minute delays and cancellations cannot be ruled out. Customers affected by canceled flights will be notified, by SMS and e-mail, no later than the day before their trip. For today June 30 , the flight schedule is up to date.
Our teams at the airport and in our customer relations centers are mobilizing and doing everything possible to support you and limit the impact of this movement. Commercial measurements are available on our site.
For the following days, Air France will adapt its program if necessary according to information from Paris Aéroport and requests from the General Directorate of Civil Aviation (DGAC).
You can count that there will be strikes during the summer in Europe when the weather is good.
The strike today has already caused significant havoc in Paris, and you can expect there will be significant disruptions over the weekend.
You have to remember that airlines must provide affected passengers accommodation and meals in case of long delays and rebook them to their final destination by all possible means, even if this means sending them to competing airlines.
The EC 261/2004 cash compensation does not apply when the delays and cancellations are caused
