easyJet has issued a travel advisory, warning British travelers of the potential for delays this week as a result of a strike by French air traffic control.

An easyJet spokesperson said: “We have been advised of a French air traffic control strike starting on Monday at 5pm February 6, through to 6am Wednesday February 8. Like all airlines, our flights to and from France, as well as those flying in French airspace, could be affected.

Additionally, even flights that don’t pass through France may still be impacted, as 65% of easyJet flights fly through French airspace and may experience delays before reaching their final destination.

Easyjet expects that there could possibly be delays and cancellations due to the industrial action, therefore they advise all customers to check the status of their flight on our flight tracker either on  mobile app or website.

Flights routing through French airspace could also be affected by air traffic control strikes.

The spokesperson added: “We will contact affected customers directly via email and SMS using the details provided at the time of booking and check in. For cancelled flights only, we advise customers not to travel to the airport but to transfer their flights free of charge or take a refund by logging onto Manage Bookings or using our Flight Tracker.”
