Jun 24 - French Strike Causes Severe Delays To Gib Flights

A strike by air controllers in France has led to serious delays to flights to and from Gibraltar airport. Although mainly affecting movements in French airports, the six-day strike has a secondary impact on all flights using French airspace.

This afternoon, the easyJet flight 8902 which was scheduled to leave the Rock at 12:10 is now predicted to take off at 18:10 this evening. The British Airways Heathrow departure is also running on a two hour delay.
