Air Controller Strike in France Causes Cancellations

PARIS — The crowds in the airport terminals serving the French capital were visibly thinner than usual for a weekday morning, airport officials said Tuesday, as air traffic controllers here began a three-day strike to protest European Union plans to accelerate the integration of the region’s fragmented air space.

As of 10 a.m., approximately 40 percent of flights had been canceled at the Charles de Gaulle airport in Roissy, north of Paris, said a spokeswoman for the airport operator, Aéroports de Paris.
