A planned industrial action by French air-traffic controllers has delayed thousands of flights and caused the cancellation of several hundred on Tuesday.

The strike is affecting flights in and around French airspace and is causing disruptions to flights throughout Europe including to and from the United Kingdom.

In the United Kingdom, British Airways, EasyJet, and Ryanair all cancelled numerous flights.

As of 4 p.m. Central European Time, 381 flights had been cancelled and over 2,500 had been delayed.

British Airways sent e-mails to its customers advising of the delay and actions being taken to minimize any impact.

“Our teams will be working hard to minimize any disruption to our services, however we would like to apologise in advance if your journey is affected and any inconvenience this may cause,” the airline said.
