Industrial action threatens to cause serious disruption to commuters tomorrow, as flights to Paris are cancelled and the train strike continues.
Aer Lingus has announced the cancellation of all its flights from Dublin, Shannon and Cork to Paris tomorrow, due to a strike by air traffic controllers in France. Ryanair has advised passengers to contact the company to rebook their flights for a later date, as have Air France, who have cancelled all tomorrow's flights between Dublin and Paris.
The 24-hour strike is likely to also cause some disruption on Tuesday as flights get back to normal. The controllers are protesting against European Commission plans to liberalise the traffic control sector to make it more competitive.
Meanwhile, rail passengers experienced another day of disruption today as the train drivers' strike entered its second week. With no sign of an end to the unofficial dispute, it looks likely that services will be affected again tomorrow. The company has again urged members of the Locomotive Drivers' Association to agree to a new rosters and work practices. Intending passengers are advised to call information Line 1850 366 222. The number will be open from 8 a.m.
