European Air Traffic Control Strike Wednesday 29th and Thursday 30th January 2014
Flybe has been advised that there will two days of industrial strike action across European Air Traffic Control services including those in France and Italy on Wednesday and Thursday (Jan 29/30). This strike action is scheduled to take place at differing times and has the potential to cause disruption to our flights.
We have already taken certain steps to minimise wherever possible any inconvenience this could cause passengers, be it directly with those European flights we operate on these two days or through the knock-on effect to other services through delayed flights into and out of French and Italian airspace during this time.
Flybe regrets any inconvenience to passengers’ travel plans resulting from this action which is entirely outside of our control. We will update this notice as and when more information becomes available.
