Royal Air Maroc: Cancellations of flights serving France follow one another due to the strike
The expected impact of France’s pension reform strike on Tuesday was seen at Paris-Orly airport, where several airlines, including Air France, Transavia, Royal Air Maroc and Vueling, announced flight cancellations . However, long-haul flights were not affected. DAGC, the French flag carrier and its low-cost subsidiary, have asked carriers to cut their flight schedules at Orly airport by 20% in line with their weekend announcement. The strike was led by a minority air traffic control union (USAC CGT). Paris-Roissy airport was not affected as during the strike of January 19.
Royal Air Maroc has had two rotations canceled between Casablanca-Mohammed V and Orly and has informed its passengers of alternative flights. Customers who did not wish to travel on the scheduled flights could request a refund or a free date change within 15 days, subject to the same destination or a destination of the Royal Air Maroc network in Europe.
Vueling, a low-cost Spanish airline, was also affected, canceling flights to and from Barcelona, Milan-Malpensa, Genoa, Lisbon, London-Gatwick and Rome-Fiumicino at Orly. Iberia and easyJet had also canceled flights, but the number of cancellations was lower than on the first day of the strike.
