Travellers into France face travel chaos

French protestors disrupt travel services

By TTM on 23 September 2010 in News

Passengers travelling into France today can expect their travel plans to be scuppered by widespread strikes affecting flights and train services.

French unions have urged public sector workers onto the streets to protest against President Sarkozy’s pension reforms and raising of the official retirement age.

Travellers on TGV trains and metro lines are likely to experience problems and the French Civil Aviation Authority has asked airlines to cut services in and out of Paris Orly airport by half and Charles de Gaulle airport by 40%.
