France asks airlines to extend flight cuts through Wednesday

French authorities have asked airlines to continue cutting flights through next Wednesday amid strikes over a retirement reform law.

The country’s civil aviation authority asked airlines to reduce flights at Paris-Orly airport by 20% on Tuesday and Wednesday. Companies were already asked to cut flights there by 33% on Sunday and by 20% on Monday. Regional airports in Marseille and Lyon have also been asked to cut flights.

Flights at Orly were reduced by 30% on Friday and by 15% on Saturday.
