Police called to Nîmes airport to break up mini riot

LanguedocLiving, Jun 25

Police were called to Nîmes airport on Monday, to diffuse the tension which was building up at the airport following a cancelled flight. 

Ryanair cancelled a flight to Fez, and passengers who were present insisted that they hadn’t received a text or email of the cancellation.

Passengers were furious, and ground staff called the police amid fears for their safety.

The flight was cancelled due to the air traffic controllers’ strike.

Meanwhile, passengers were also glum at Montpellier airport on Monday, where Easyjet flights were delayed by up to four hours.
