    A planned air traffic controller strike in France on Thursday is expected to cause significant disruptions at the country&#8217 ;s airports, the DGAC civil aviation authority said.

    In a statement, DGAC noted it had asked airlines to cut flights by 75% at Paris-Orly airport, by 55% at Paris Charles-De-Gaulle airport, by 65% ​​at Marseille airport and by 45% at all other airports, on Thursday April 25.

    The DGAC made this announcement although the biggest union representing French air traffic control workers, the SNCTA, had said it was calling off a threatened strike on April 25 after reaching a deal with management over working conditions.

    The deal came too late to avoid traffic disruptions while discussions have yet to be finalized with other unions, DGAC said.
