Dublin Airport May 2011 17 1

Both Ryanair and Aer Lingus have had to cancel some flights today due to strikes by French air traffic controllers.

Ryanair have cancelled over 70 flights across Europe with four involving Irish airports, while Aer Lingus have been forced to cancel five flights in and out of Dublin.

Aer Lingus have also issued a warning that there may be delays on routes over French airspace. If your flight has been implicated by these strikes, you can rebook or apply for a refund with both airlines immediately.

There are three more days of strikes planned for early next month, in protest of planned government labour reforms.
