Alitalia Flight Cancellations On January 14, 2020

Italian air traffic controllers are striking for four hours on Tuesday (January 14, 2020) between 1 PM – 5 PM, resulting in many flight cancellations and retimings.

Alitalia has released a list of flights that it has decided to cancel. You should check if your Alitalia operated flight has been affected. The air traffic controller strike likely affects other airlines too that fly to/from/via Italian airspace.

You can access Alitalia here.

Here’s the announcement from Alitalia:

Some Italian trade unions have confirmed for Tuesday 14 January a 4-hour air traffic controllers strike from 1 pm to 5 pm. The airline was therefore forced to cancel some domestic and international flights scheduled for 14 January from 1 pm to 5 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: 75 per cent of the involved travelers will fly on the same 14 January.

Travelers affected by cancellations can check on which flight they have been rebooked by connecting at www.alitalia.com and filling in the empty fields ‘First Name’, ‘Last Name’ and ‘Reservation Code’ in the ‘MY FLIGHTS’ section in the home page of the website.

Alitalia invites all customers already holding tickets for travels on 14 January from 1 pm to 5 pm to check the status of their flights before going to the airport on alitalia.com 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 14 January 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 21 January.

Here are the canceled flights:

Conclusion

Alitalia is required to rebook affected passengers and to provide duty to care (accommodation, meals, and phone cards in case of long delays) per EC 261/2004. They are not, however, required to provide cash compensation because it is an outside strike that they have no control over.

Readers that are scheduled to fly on Alitalia or other flights touching Italian airspace should monitor their itineraries.
