OVER 100,000 passengers have been left stranded after a French air-traffic-control strike.
Ryanair cancelled 222 flights, half to Spain, including 24 to Alicante and 16 to both Palma de Mallorca and Barcelona.
Pressure group Airlines For Europe (A4E) estimates seven out of 10 air-traffic control strikes since 2005 have been by French staff.
Thomas Reynaert, managing director of A4E, said: “The impact of the seventh strike day in France this year will be quite significant: airlines have been forced to reduce their flight programme by a third.”
Strikers are protesting against President Macron’s labour reforms.
Around 40,000 of passengers affected had been due to fly with Ryanair.
