Those travelling to France between now and Monday 30 June may be left disappointed, with Flybe cancelling some flights due to strikes taking place in the country.

Flybe reported, via their website, that French Unions have called for an official six-day strike scheduled to take place in France between 0400 (French local time) on June 24 and 0400 (French local time) on June 30, 2014.

Flybe have been requested, by the French aviation authorities, to reduce their flying programme. This means a number of flight cancellations to the country are to be expected.

Before heading to the airport, Flybe passengers travelling to and from France are advised to check this website on a regular basis throughout this six-day period to check on the status of individual flights. If your flight is cancelled you will be able to make a change or claim a refund using the online tool.

Passengers whose flights are going ahead as normal are advised to be prepared for the possibility of disruption.

Flybe is promising passangers that they will continue to do everything possible to minimise any disruption resulting from this industrial action and apologises in advance for any inconvenience that may be experienced by passengers through these circumstances that are entirely beyond their control.
