Milan-Linate airport closure: Italian ENAC "warns" companies
Anyone who has already purchased a ticket will be re-issued or reimbursed
Also the Italian Authority for the Civil Aviation (ENAC) intervened in the question concerning the possibility of purchasing air tickets for connections with the Milan-Linate airport, even when the airport is closed for 3 months for the reconstruction of asphalt works. The aviation regulator, headed by the general director Alessio Quaranta, has asked the airlines to get in order not to incur a report to the Antitrust, from where it could get a heavy fine for misleading advertising. All carriers -excluding easyJet-, before ENAC's intervention, allowed the sale of tickets for Linate, even though they knew that the Milan airport would be closed for three months (from 27 July to 27 October) having been notified for months of the work necessary for the rebuilding of the asphalt belt. Who has already booked the flight will have to be "advised and or re-authorized or reimbursed, depending on what the customer will decide", but it remains a situation that has the paradoxical.
As of today, October 15, it is still possible to book an air ticket departing or arriving at Milan-Linate in the three months of closure -on the airlines' websites- only with Lufthansa, Brussels Airlines and Scandinavian Airlines (SAS), while Alitalia, British Airways, Iberia, Air Malta, Air France, KLM, and as AVIONEWS said, easyJet, have updated their programming by removing the links with Linate.
