PARIS - French air traffic controllers walked off the job at the start of a three-day strike on Tuesday, grounding hundreds of flights across the country in a Europe-wide protest against European Union plans to liberalize civil airspace.

One in two flights to airports serving Paris, Lyon, Nice, Marseille, Toulouse and Bordeaux were cancelled, France's DGAC civil aviation authority said.

Workers are concerned EU plans for a "Single European Sky" will adversely affect their working conditions.
