Following the call for strike action launched by an air traffic controller union for the period from Tuesday 24 to Sunday 29 June 2014, the French Civil Aviation Authority has instructed airlines to reduce by 20% their flight schedule on 24 June to/from Bordeaux, Lyon, Marseille, Toulouse, as well as to and from airports in the Paris region for flights to the South of France, the Iberian peninsula and North Africa.
On this basis, we expect to operate:
• all our long-haul flights
• Over 90% of our short and medium-haul flights
Our flights schedule is updatec for Tuesday 24, June 2014.
In case of a cancellation, Air France offers the AF Connect service to directly inform customers on their mobile phone, smartphone or by email using their personal contact details provided to the airline. The free AF Connect service is available in 13 languages for all passengers worldwide.
In order to be personally notified by AF Connect, Air France invites customers to update their personal contact details (mobile phone and /or email address) in their reservation file on the airline’s website, in the “consult/modify my bookings” section.
