Over 20,000 Ryanair customers had their flights cancelled on Tuesday due to a strike by French air traffic controllers, with services to and from Alicante-Elche and San Javier airport scrapped.

The action was taken by controllers in a protest over French  labour reforms, with other services to and from the British Isles running behind schedule, with some delays running up to four hours.

Ryanair’s marketing director, Kenny Jacobs, said: “Enough is enough. If the French Government is serious about changing France, they should start by tackling these air traffic control unions, and together with the European Commission should take immediate action to prevent thousands of European consumers from having their travel plans disrupted by a tiny group of ATC unions going on strike once again.

“They cannot stand idly by as more disruption and travel misery is inflicted upon Europe’s consumers and airlines.”
