Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - NEWS -

TRAV­ELLERS could face a sum­mer of hol­i­day chaos over threat­ened strikes by air traf­fic con­trollers on the con­ti­nent, Ryanair warned yes­ter­day.

The air­line called for ac­tion by the Euro­pean Com­mis­sion and EU gov­ern­ments to stop the “alarm­ing de­te­ri­o­ra­tion” in ATC ser­vices.

Ryanair chief Michael O’leary fears a “full melt­down” re­sult­ing in de­lays or even can­celled flights.

He said: “Yet again this week­end French ATC will strike lead­ing to hun­dreds of flights be­ing can­celled, dis­rupt­ing the hol­i­day plans of thousands of pas­sen­gers.”
