HOLIDAYS to France and Italy could be thrown into chaos as airport strikes begin this week and could disrupt travel to the popular holiday destinations.
Italy flights could be disrupted this month as a series of aviation strikes are threatened. Staff at Italian airports and employees of airlines Alitalia and Air Italy will be walking out as soon as tomorrow.
On Friday – the biggest day of the week for aviation – workers will go on strike from 12pm to 4pm local time. EasyJet has said it “plans to operate its full flying schedule,”.
The budget carrier – which has dozens of flights between the UK and Italy scheduled – added: “We do recommend that all customers flying to or from Italy on Friday 3 May allow extra time to get to the airport.
“Although this is outside of our control we would like to apologise to customers for any inconvenience and would like to assure them that we are doing all possible to minimise any disruption as a result of the industrial action.”.
Alitalia – which flies from London and Manchester – has yet to say if its flights will be disrupted. British Airways flights to and from Italy will not be impacted.
