Ryanair called on the UK, Irish, Italian and Spanish government to take action on overflights as French ATC strikes are set to cause mass disruption of air travel again.
Ryanair takes issue with the French government using minimum service legislation to protect French flights but not for thousands of passengers travelling to the UK, Ireland, Italy and Spain which simply overfly France.
Ryanair CEO, Michael O’Leary said:” We’re fed up with these repeated flight disruptions and cancellations caused by French ATC unions.”
The EU Commission continues to stand idly by while Europe’s single market for air travel is wrecked again and again.”
“If the EU Commission won’t act to protect its citizens, then national governments must intervene.”
