Palma airport affected by the French strike as were many other airports. | Aina Ginard

French air-traffic controllers took part in yesterday's strikes across France that were led by the hard-left CGT union against planned labour reforms by President Emmanuel Macron.

Ryanair cancelled 110 flights in total. Chief marketing officer Kenny Jacobs said that enough was enough. If the French government is serious about changing France, he insisted that it should start with the air-traffic control unions. Once more, thousands of passengers were having travel plans disrupted by the unions.

EasyJet announced that there would be disruptions yesterday, including those not flying through French airspace. By around ten o'clock yesterday evening there had been a total of thirty cancellations of flights into and out of Palma (five per cent of the day's schedule) as well as numerous delays.
