Airlines warn of disruptions to French flights

A strike by air traffic controllers could snarl plans for air travelers flying to or through France this week.

Air France and Delta are among carriers that have waived rebooking fees — with restrictions.

That comes as the AFP news agency writes "France braced for travel chaos" this week as the strike threat began.

Controllers have called for a six-day strike with disruptions to begin Tuesday. Ahead of that, France's civil aviation agency on Monday urged airlines pare flights schedules by up to 20% in Paris and in other key destinations.

Ghana airport workers plan strike to cripple operations at Kotoka Airport

The indecision of President John Dramani Mahama in replacing the “over-aged” Director-General (D-G) of the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), Air Cdr. Kwame Mamphey (Rtd), is likely to be one of the main reasons for the impending strike by the Ghana Air Traffic Controllers.

The association also cites the bad safety culture in Ghana Civil Aviation regarding certification of Aerodromes, ATS facilities, Aviation Security and Aviation Meteorology, as well as inability to attain the FAA category one status among others, as the shortcomings of their Director General; and want him replaced.
