Taxi drivers in Nice are blocking roads leading to Nice-Côte d'Azur airport (NCE) as of Tuesday, May 14, following an argument between a consumer watchdog agent - who was conducting controls on taxi drivers but not on tourism vehicle drivers - and a taxi driver. The protest, which comes amid the opening of the Cannes Film festival, is leading to significant delays at the airport. Travelers have been advised to arrive earlier than scheduled at the airport. Disruptions are likely to persist over the coming hours.
Individuals flying to or from NCE are advised to monitor the situation, allow additional time to reach their destination, anticipate transportation disruptions and a heightened security presence, and avoid all protests as a precaution.
