Airlines prepare for Europe-wide air traffic strike



 


Airlines are preparing for a Europe-wide air traffic control strike next Wednesday which could lead to mass flight disruption.

But he added that the German controllers could not do more without running the risk of legal action being taken against them.


The Air Traffic Controllers European Unions Coordination(ATCEUC), which represents 14,000 flight overseers across 28 European countries, has revived plans to strike over planned safety and savings targets by the European Commission, which it says could endanger the safe provision of services.
