Half of the flights to and from France will be canceled on Friday

A strike by workers could cancel half of all flights to and from France on Friday.

France's aviation authority, DGAC, has warned of severe disruption, asking airlines to halve their schedules and urging passengers to delay travel.

The French union SNCTA - the country's main union for air traffic controllers - called the strike over wages and working conditions.

In a statement, the union said inflation was eroding workers' wages, calling for higher wages and more recruitment.

Air France has said it will contact each passenger individually.

DGAC has advised passengers on other airlines to contact their airline for more information.

If your flight is cancelled, you may be entitled to a full refund or a seat on another flight.

If no deal is reached after Friday, the union plans a second strike for September 28-30.
