Aircraft and transport. Alitalia: extraordinary plan for strikes today
Some national and international flights have been cancelled - ATTACHMENT
Some Italian trade unions have confirmed for today on Monday 25 November a 4-hour air traffic controllers strike from 1 pm to 5 pm, as well as a 4-hour strike in the aviation sector at the same times. The airline was therefore forced to cancel some domestic and international flights scheduled for 25 November from 1 pm to 5 pm.
The Italian carrier 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 the involved travellers will fly on the same 25 November.
Alitalia invites all customers already holding tickets for travels on 25 November from 1 pm to 5 pm 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 on 25 November can rebook their travel at no additional cost or penalty, or ask for full ticket refund (only if the flight is cancelled or the delay on departure exceeds 5 hours) by 2 December.
The list of cancelled flights (five pages) is attached to this AVIONEWS.
