France Industrial Action.
The National Day of Action in France is expected to have limited impact on travel services. The (massive) CGT union is striking over pension reforms. Some flights were delayed overnight. So far only Calais seems to be affected, none of the other ferry operators are warning of delays. Eurotunnel is expected to operate as normal. Disruption is expected last until 07:00 BST tomorrow.
20:30 – @MyFerryLink, ‘We are currently experiencing delays at Dover due to Industrial Action in France.’ Like all the other operators it says to check in as normal.
17:50 – DFDS Dover-Calais operating up to three hours behind schedule. No reports of specific delays from other operators though P&O Dover-Calais has consistently warned passengers to be prepared for disruption.
15:15 – The MyFerryLink 13:15 was delayed by 1h40, an increasing delay but there’s no sign of that being repeated with other operators at the moment.
12:00 – no cancelled services but P&O Freight and MyFerryLink sailings to Calais are delayed by 40mins+ due to berthing restrictions.
10:00 – @BrittanyFerries tweets to say its services are running as normal. @MyFerryLink says its 08:30 Dover-Calais service actually left one hour late due to the strike.
08:00 – DFDS says no delays to Dunkirk but apparently ‘slight’ delays to Calais. The MyFerryLink 08:30 Dover-Calais is delayed by 45mins.
07:00 – P&O has cancelled its 08:40 Calais-Dover sailing but says all other services are operating to schedule. MyFerryLink 07:00 Dover-Calais delayed by 40mins.
