Tomorrow's strike in Italy. Alitalia: half of the connections cancelled
Both national and international - ATTACHMENT
Due to a 24-hour air transport sector strike confirmed by some Italian trade unions for Tuesday 21 May, Alitalia was forced to cancel half of its flights scheduled for that day, as well as some flights scheduled for the late evening of 20 May and the early morning of 22 May.
Flights set to operate on 21 May during the peak times between 7 am to 10 am and from 6 pm to 9 pm will operate as scheduled.
The airline 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: 60 per cent of involved travellers will fly on the same 21 May 2019.
The carrier invites all customers already holding tickets for travels on 21 May, as well as on the late evening of 20 May and the early morning of 22 May, 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 800-650055 (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 from the late evening of 20 May to the early morning of 22 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 May 28, 2019.
