1 Comment

Air transport sector strikes will take place in Italy tomorrow (July 26, 2019) between 10AM -2PM local time.

Italy Spanish Steps

Airlines has mostly canceled flights that were due to take off/arrive during these hours and moved passengers to earlier/later services. You should check your itineraries on all airlines to/from Italy on flights scheduled for Friday.

Here’s announcement from Alitalia:

Due to 4-hour air transport sector strikes confirmed by some Italian unions for Friday 26 July from 10 am to 2 pm, some changes may occur to the Alitalia flight schedule during that day.

The airline was therefore forced to cancel some domestic and international flights scheduled for 26 July from 10 am to 2 pm.

List of cancelled flights is available here.

Alitalia has taken special measures to mitigate customer inconvenience by operating bigger aircraft on domestic and international routes, in order to rebook passengers affected by cancellations onto the first available flights on the same day: 60 per cent of involved travelers will fly on the same 26 July.

Alitalia invites all customers already holding tickets for travels on 26 July from 10 am to 2 pm to check the status of their flights before going to the airport on website, or calling the airline at the toll-free number 800.65.00.55 (within Italy), at +39 06.65649 (from overseas), or contacting the travel agency where the ticket was bought.

Travelers affected by cancellation or schedule change of Alitalia flights on 26 July can rebook their travel at no additional cost or penalty, or ask for a full ticket refund (only if the flight is cancelled or the delay on departure exceeds 5 hours) by 2 August.

Alitalia reminds that Milan Linate airport will stop operations for works on runway from 27 July to 27 October 2019. During this period, Alitalia travelers will be able to fly to and from Milan Malpensa and Bergamo Orio al Serio airports.

There has been plenty of strike activity as of late in Europe, although the Heathrow strike scheduled for this Friday and Saturday was suspended (read more here).

Remember that airlines are required to provide Duty to Care (meals, accommodation +phone cards) per EC 261/2004 for long delays and rebook affected passengers to their final destinations at the earliest opportunity even when this means moving them to competing airlines.
