French strike to delay Oman Air flights to Paris

Muscat: Flights between Oman and France will experience minor delays due to strikes by French air-traffic controllers, Oman Air said.
In a notice uploaded on its official twitter handle on Sunday evening, the airline said that due to possible strikes by French air-traffic controllers, announced from March 6 to 10, Oman Air flights to and from Paris could experience minor delays.
“We will monitor the situation and provide updates as necessary,” the airline added.
Meanwhile, according to media reports, British Airways has cancelled at least 40 flights on Monday because of the first French air-traffic control strike of the year, plus a further six departures because of a week-long stoppage by some cabin crew.
A strike by staff at control centres in Brest and Bordeaux runs from Monday 6 to Friday 10 March, with controllers at the south of France centre in Aix-en-Provence stopping work between Tuesday and Thursday.
The air-traffic controllers are taking action over a range of issues, including rostering and pay. They say their counterparts in Germany earn much more for less work.
