PASSENGERS flying to and from France and elsewhere on the Continent face more delays and flight cancellations this weekend as a strike by French air traffic controllers enters its fourth day.

Numerous flights between Dublin and Paris and elsewhere in France have been cancelled or delayed since French air traffic controllers began their five-day strike on Tuesday.

Aer Lingus said only a minimal number of flights between Dublin Airport and Paris's Charles de Gaulle Airport were cancelled. However, the strike has led to numerous minor delays.

The strike, affecting short and medium-haul flights, is expected to cause disruption until it officially ends on Sunday.
