France: Air traffic controllers to strike nationwide March 5-8

France News Alert

Air traffic controllers’ union calls for nationwide strikes on March 5-8; confirm flight reservations

TIMEFRAME expected from 3/4/2020, 12:00 AM until 3/8/2020, 11:59 PM (Europe/Paris). COUNTRY/REGION France


The USAC-CGT union, which represents air traffic controllers, announced that its members will go on strike from Thursday, March 5, to Sunday, March 8. Participants seek to protest the government's proposed universal pension reform. If recent related air traffic controller strikes are any indication, this round should have little impact on air traffic.

Flight delays and cancelations should be expected in French airports across the country during the strike period.


Strikes and protests have taken place across the country since December 5 to protest the government's proposed universal pension reform. The strikes have resulted in significant transportation disruptions across France.


Individuals flying into or out of France are advised to monitor developments, expect consequent flight delays and cancelations, confirm flight reservations prior to leaving for the airport, and contact their airline for more information.
