ITALIAN AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS STRIKE FROM 1 PM TO 5 PM ON 11 JANUARY

Some unions of the Italian air traffic controllers have confirmed for Friday 11 January 2019 a strike from 1 pm to 5 pm.

The industrial action could affect the schedule of Alitalia flights on 11 January. The airline was therefore forced to cancel several domestic and international flights scheduled for 11 January.

 

List of cancelled flights is available here.

 

Alitalia has taken special measures to mitigate customer inconvenience and rebook the highest number of passengers affected by cancellations onto the first available flights: 80 per cent of involved travelers will fly on the same 11 January.

 

Alitalia invites all customers already holding tickets for travels on 11 January 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 11 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 18 January.
