Italian airline Alitalia has canceled 95 domestic and international flights. Air Italy is also expected to cancel number of flights due to strikes by aviation workers.
The Italian newspaper L’Aquale reported in its European version on Monday that Italian air transport unions had called for strikes over staff contracts. Alitalia staff are planning a four-hour strike on Monday, while Air Italy employees will halt the work for 24 hours.
The newspaper pointed out that most of the flights (Alitalia) affected between the cities of Italy and in Europe with the expectation of long-haul flights of these strikes.
Alitalia said it had drawn up a plan to replace passenger flights affected on the same day, while Air Italy had not yet released the information on its affected flights.
Air transport authorities noted that passengers can re-book their flights at no additional cost, while passengers whose flights are canceled or delayed for more than five hours are entitled to a full refund.
