French air traffic controllers have called off a strike three days early, to the relief of British air passengers who faced disruption to their services this week.

British Airways, Ryanair and easyjet were forced to cancel some services on Tuesday and yesterday because of the action, which had been due to carry on until the end of Sunday.
