Strike Hits Flights To and From Paris Airports

Flights have been cancelled at the two main Paris airports as French air traffic controllers begin a five-day strike. Half of the flights in and out of Orly airport and one in four from Charles de Gaulle have been cancelled.
Staff are protesting because of an agreement which was signed by six nations, France, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Switzerland, to modernise air traffic control that may lead to job losses.

The strike is taking place during a school holiday in France. It is said by analysts that Union leaders were hoping to put pressure on President Nicolas Sarkozy's government ahead of regional elections next month.

So if you are flying to France in the near future it may be a good idea to check your flight with your airline.
