France has gone ahead with a major reorganisation of its air traffic control (ATC) system in an effort to reduce delays.

The number of air traffic controllers to be hired will be doubled from 90 last year to 180, two new sectors will be created at Paris and Reims to improve handling of traffic from Brussels and Paris/Charles de Gaulle, and traffic on the southern sectors will be rebalanced to improve the sharing of workload at Aix-en-Provence and Bordeaux during the summer season.
