The French look set to start causing air traffic control problems again this summer with France's air traffic controllers threatening industrial action on Monday. Every summer the staff at Marseille traffic control tower cause problems with South West European and Spanish air traffic, but the threat of air traffic controllers across France taking industrial action will cause widespread problems across Europe. Yesterday the Spanish Airport and Air Traffic Control authority AENA, issued a communique in which it states that French controllers are threatening to take 26-hours of industrial action on Monday at 6am. AENA said yesterday that all European air traffic will be affected, with delays and even flight cancellations possible. What is more, Spain and the Balearics will be especially hit as most of in-bound traffic has to fly through French air space. French controllers have agreed to operate at a minimum and a special service for air traffic flying in and out of the country, but Eurocontrol has stated that traffic will be disrupted.
