Italian Air Traffic Controllers Strike

More than 100 flights were cancelled on Tuesday as airline staff and air traffic controllers called a four-hour nationwide strike

More than 100 flights were cancelled on Tuesday as airline staff and air traffic controllers called a four-hour nationwide strike.

Alitalia had cancelled 139 flights by Tuesday morning, while EasyJet, Air Italy, AlbaStar, Blue Air, Volotea and Ernest Airlines were also warning of delays and cancellations. Most of the flights affected were domestic or short-haul to other destinations in Europe, though some Alitalia services to New York, Tokyo and Casablanca were also cancelled.

Italy's transport ministry stepped in last week to reduce the strike from 24 hours to four "in order to avoid serious and irreparable damage to the constitutionally guaranteed right of free movement," the ministry said in a statement.

Passengers due to travel today should check their flight status before setting out for the airport. If your flight is cancelled, you are entitled to change your ticket without charge or request a full refund.
