A French air traffic control strike is set to delay passengers travelling to and from the continent this weekend.

The European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation posted on its website that French aviation agency DSNA confirmed industrial action would go ahead in France from 5am on Sunday until 5am on Tuesday.

There is "high participation" expected by area control centres in Paris, Marseille and Brest over the 48-hour period.

A 20% reduction in flights is due to affect seven airports across France, including Marseille, Lyon and Paris Orly, DSNA said.

Tarbes-Lourdes-Pyrenees, Pau airport in the Pyrenees and Bastia-Poretta airport in Corsica will also have reduced flights, but Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris is not thought to be affected.
