British Airways Latest on Air Traffic Control Disruption in Europe

19th Jun 2002

Due to the planned industrial action by air traffic controllers in Europe tomorrow, Wednesday June 19, British Airways has cancelled most of its 126 flights (63 flights each way) in and out of France from midnight tonight until midnight Wednesday. Only four services to and from France will be able to operate as normal.

There will also be additional impact on some European flights which overfly French airspace. This will involve the cancellation of a further 38 European flights (19 flights each way). Countries affected are Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg.

In addition, a proposed general strike in Spain on Thursday, June 20, is expected to lead to further disruption to some services to and from Spain. We will provide the latest updates on these flight changes as soon as information becomes available.

British Airways will either re-book its customers affected by the cancellations on the next available flight or offer vouchers to the value of their tickets which can be used on future British Airways travel or exchanged for a refund.

Customers are being advised to telephone the airline on 0845 7799977 to check the latest status of flights or to visit the website -
