Some unions of the air traffic controllers have confirmed for 8 May a national strike, from 10 am to 6 p


The industrial action could affect the schedule of Alitalia flights on 8 May. The airline was therefore forced to cancel several domestic and international flights scheduled for 8 May.

List of cancelled flights is available here.


To minimize inconvenience, bigger aircraft will operate on several domestic and international routes in order to carry as more passengers as possible on 8 May.


Alitalia invites all customers already holding tickets for travels on 8 May 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.


Travellers affected by cancellation or schedule change of Alitalia flights on 8 May 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 15 May.
