The MFA informs Romanian citizens who are in, transiting or intend to travel to the French Republic that on Monday, May 1, 2023, a general strike is planned, in a context in which there will be disruptions to national (TGV, Ouigo), local (TER, Intercités) railway traffic , Transilien) and international (Thalys, Eurostar). Details regarding the movement of trains can be consulted on the websites of the companies.
Also, urban public transport will be disrupted due to the change in the routes of some transport lines, against the background of the planned demonstrations in the cities. Citizens are advised to consult local transport network websites for traffic forecasts, as well as the RATP website for details on traffic in the Paris region.
The unions of the Paris airports (Charles-de-Gaulle and Orly) have announced that they will join the strike call, which could lead to flight disruptions. Passengers will be notified of possible flight cancellations/delays via SMS.
The National Union of Commercial Navigating Personnel (SNPNC-FO) has foreseen a social movement concerning the flight attendants of the Vueling airline, which will create disruptions to the flight schedule. At the same time, for the period May 2 – 3, 2023, the General Directorate of Civil Aviation (DGAC) requested airlines to cancel 33% of the flight schedule at Paris-Orly Airport, as a result of the air traffic controllers’ strike.
The MAE shows that it is possible to extend the strike even after this date, in certain sectors, including public transport.
