Heavy snow in the Paris region resulted in most flights to and from the capital and Nice Airport being cancelled on Wednesday, February 7.
Nice Airport also warned of substantial delays to the flights that did operate, sometimes close to two and a half hours. Several flights were cancelled on Tuesday, including to London. By 05:00 on Wednesday morning, 13 cm of snow had landed at Orly and Roissy Airports in Paris.
After a very cold night with a temperature of -8, the forecast for Paris on Thursday is for plenty of sunshine and a high of 2 celsius.
Meanwhile, the CGT trade union said it would cancel its national strike of rail workers planned for Thursday, for “security reasons.” The union, which has been protesting against a range of issues, said it would announce a new date for a stoppage within the next few days.
