France's civil aviation authority has asked airlines to reduce flights out of Paris' Charles de Gaulle airport by half for several hours due to a shortage of the liquid used to deice planes.

The order came just as backlogs of passengers waiting for a flight at Paris' two main airports eased after days of major weather-related congestion.
