After Thursday’s railway strike, Italy faces more public transport problems. On Saturday (15 July) air traffic will be cancelled. Ground staff at Italian airports, handling and check-in services are on strike from 10am to 6pm. The unions complain that her contract expired six years ago, and therefore demand that it be renewed immediately.
ITA Airways will cancel a total of 133 flights on Saturday. Air Malta pilots are on strike from 12:00pm to 4:00pm on Saturday. Also on Saturday, the pilots and flight attendants from Vueling will go on strike from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. It called on the Italian unions to stop working “because the company is unwilling to develop constructive and healthy industrial relations with the unions.”
Travelers from Austria are also affected
Air traffic strikes can also become an obstacle for travelers from Austria. “Because of the strike scheduled for Saturday, the impact on flights between Vienna and Italy cannot be ruled out,” a spokesman for Vienna Airport told APA on Friday. “From today’s perspective, ten flights will be canceled – six arriving and four departing – and the affected destinations are Bologna, Venice, Florence and Milan. In addition, individual delays cannot be ruled out.” Vienna Airport advises all travelers to obtain information from the tour operator or airline in advance.
