Demonstrations Planned

Jan 29, 2020

Demonstrations are scheduled throughout France for 29 January 2020 as part of an ongoing dispute over the government’s plans to reform the country’s pension system. Union leaders have called for thousands of workers to join the demonstrations, although they expect turnout to be lower than for previous such events. In Paris, disruptions to the metro and the rapid transit system, the Réseau Express Régional (RER), are expected throughout the day. Additionally, air traffic controllers plan to observe a strike across the country from 1900 local time (1800 UTC) on 28 January to 0630 local time on 30 January. While no flight cancellations have been announced and no significant disruptions are expected, travelers should nonetheless contact their respective airlines to check the status of their flights.
