A NATIONWIDE strike in France is expected to cause delays and cancellations of flights, public transport and schools.

The protests started yesterday (Wednesday) and are due to last until tomorrow (Friday) between 5:00am and 6:00am.

Approximately 30 per cent of flights are set to be reduced, with Paris Orly, Toulouse, Lyon and Marseille to be the most affected airports.


Ryanair, easyJet, British Airways and Air France flights have cancelled flights with routes between France and the UK, as well as Spain, Portugal and other EU countries having been affected.
