French air traffic controllers have announced plans for three days of strike action this week, which will see a up to 50% of services between Britain and France cancelled.
The three-day strike action is scheduled to take place from 6am on Tuesday 11 June until 6am on Friday 14 June, affecting airports including Bordeaux, Marseille, Paris Orly, Paris Charles de Gaulle, Toulouse, Nice, and Lyon.
British Airways said in a statement: "British Airways has cancelled a large number of its services to and from France as a result of planned strike action by French air traffic controllers between 5am BST and 10pm BST on Tuesday June 3.
"It is expected that at least 90 individual British Airways flights out of a normal Tuesday schedule between the UK and France of 120 individual flights will be cancelled.
"British Airways flights to and from France will be affected at Heathrow, Gatwick, London City, Birmingham, Manchester, Bristol and Edinburgh."
Meanwhile EasyJet says it expects to cancel "approximately 128 flights each day" and is advising passengers who want to rebook to "only select flights [that depart] after the strike action has ended".
