The DGAC is implementing a flight reduction programme as follows:

Operators should be prepared to reduce their programmes after 1200 UTC if necessary.

Arrival and departures from LFLL and LFML must be reduced by 30% from 0400-1800 UTC as they are wholly within the LFMM ACC.

Operators to Nice (LFMN)are not requested to reduce their flying programmes, as traffic can route via LIMM (Milan ACC) avoiding LFMM ACC.
