Air France cancels 30 percent of flights on Wed

The Local, Apr 10

Some 30 percent of Air France flights have been cancelled on Wednesday. 

Here's what you can expect on Wednesday from Air France, where several staff unions are on strike.

- 40 percent of long-haul flights cancelled
- 35 percent of medium-haul flights cancelled to and from Paris-CDG
- 25 percent of short-haul flights cancelled between Paris-Orly and other French airports.

The airline put out a bulletin on Tuesday saying that last-minute delays and cancellations could be expected.

It added that it was too early to evaluate the impacts of the strikes called for April 17th, 18th, 23rd, and 24th.

Air France flights operated by an aircraft other than Air France or Joon will not be affected by the strikes.

"The impact on Air France's operating profit of seven days of strikes between February 22 and April 11 is estimated at 170 million euros," the group said.

Air France was forced to cancel scores of flights on Tuesday as pilots, cabin crew and ground staff pursue a sixth day of strikes aimed at securing higher pay.
