The industrial action begun on Tuesday by French ATC staff has ended after two days, instead of the six days originally planned. The strike was called off after long talks between the ATC union and the government. The strike was in protest against budget cuts associated with the EU Single European Skies (SES) project, and at the continued use of “outdated equipment”. The French regulator DGAC stated around one-in-five flights from Paris were cancelled during the strike. Before the strike was called-off, the DGAC predicted  a “marked improvement” on Thursday and that “95% of flights will function”.
