Update: French government works to diffuse protests but disruptive demonstrations likely to continue |

Travel Alerts

Travelers to France should remain alert to local developments as the “yellow vest” movement against France’s new higher environment taxes on fuel is not fully resolved despite the government’s attempts to diffuse the situation. 

French Prime Minister, Édouard Philippe said the government would postpone the controversial fuel tax hike, but analysts say that this is unlikely to stem ‘yellow vest’ protesters’ anger which has expanded into a broader fury against President Macron who has been nicknamed “president of the rich”.

In addition over the past several days other groups including ambulance drivers and students have launched their own protests. Several Facebook pages are still calling for additional rounds of yellow-vest demonstrations every Saturday until their concerns are fully addressed.

All visitors in France are advised to monitor developments to the situation, allow for extra time to reach their destinations, and avoid all protests as a precaution as some have been violent.

Airlines are operating normal flight schedules in/out and around France but continue to advise that passengers review ground transportation options and allow plenty of extra time to get to the airport.
