Air France Pilots’ industrial action week beginning 22 September

Last week, Air France flights were significantly disrupted by industrial action by Air France pilots.

The industrial action was due to end tomorrow, Monday, 22 September. However, the latest news is that industrial action will continue until Friday 26 September.

The essence of the dispute are plans by Air France’s parent company, Air France KLM, to expand its low cost Transavia unit (as summarised by the Financial Times.)

As of Sunday evening, cancellations have been loaded for Monday 22 September and Tuesday 23 September on the London Heathrow – Paris Charles de Gaulle route and real time flight departure & arrival information is available on the Air France website.

Air France has also provided specific guidance on cancellation and rebooking options on its website.
