Hanoi (VNA) – Vietnam Airlines has warned its passengers who plan to travel between Vietnam and France or transit in Paris to keep updated on flight schedules which might be affected by French pilots’ four-day strike from June 11.

According to the national flag carrier, Air France cancelled two flights under code-share agreement with Vietnam Airlines between Ho Chi Minh City and Paris on June 11 and 12.

The cancellation affected more than 130 passengers who have been transferred to vacant seats on other flights operated by Vietnam Airlines.

The airline recommended its passengers should regularly check information on official websites of the two carriers, or seek assistance from Vietnam Airlines’ agents across the country and in France.

Vietnam Airlines has been keeping contact with Air France to get updates on the case and prepare a contingency plan.

In 2014, a similar Air France pilot strike took place on September, affecting about 1,400 Vietnam Airlines passengers.-VNA
