Airport strikes France April possibly May 2024

Time of past OR future Camino
100 characters or fewer : see signature details
Warning for those flying in to France -- there's a strike tomorrow April 25th, which likely will NOT prevent flying in or out of the country on international flights, but is very likely to affect flights between Paris and Bayonne and other regional airports.

There's the risk of a similar but longer strike on the 9th, 10th, and 11th of May.

Revise your travel plans accordingly !!
The focus is on reducing the risk of failure through being well prepared. 2nd ed.
