Hundreds stranded at French airports after Algerian airline strike

PARIS, July 12 (KUNA) — Several hundred people were stranded at airports throughout France after a lightning strike was called by flight crews from Algerian carrier “Air Algerie,” aviation sources confirmed Tuesday.
Media sources indicated that a number of flights were cancelled at the Paris Orly airport and airports in provincial areas of France.
An official at “Aeroports de Paris”, the local French authority, told KUNA that “at least eight flights” were cancelled at Orly airport and hundreds of passengers due to depart on Monday were forced to spend the night in the terminal.
No end date for the strike has been yet announced.
Flight staff at the Algerian company already called for strike action last month and many flights were cancelled or delayed after June 15. (end) jk.asa KUNA 120953 Jul 11NNNN
