Cabin crew and air traffic control staff to strike in Italy for July 17. Train strikes planned in multiple regions during July
Pilots and cabin crew from several low-cost carriers will hold a one-day strike in Italy on 17 July, which will also create inconvenience to Naples Capodichino Airport.
The strike will be pilots and flight attendants of RyanAir, EasyJet and Volotea for 4 hours, from 14 to 18. In any case, they will be guaranteed flights in the time slots from 7.00 to 10.00 and from 18.00 to 21.00.
The industrial action could affect the schedule of ITA Airways flights on July 17th. The airline was therefore forced to cancel several domestic and international flights scheduled for July, 17th, 2022.
List of cancelled flights
The protest also involves the subsidiaries of low cost Ryanair, that is Malta Air e crewlink. The strike was called by the unions Filt Cgil and Uiltrasporti and the workers of the airport handling service companies also join.
Ryanair cabin staff in several European cities recently went on strike, while staff in Spain will walk off the job again this month with strikes planned from 18 to 21 and 25 to 28 July.
Trenitalia workers have also scheduled regional strikes for eight hours on July 22nd and 23 hours from July 24th to July 25th. On July 22nd, workers in Calabria will stop for eight hours, while on July 24th, Trenitalia workers will strike for 23 hours in Trentino Alto Adige.
It is also important to note that strikes and issues affecting your destination country could also influence your trip. Passengers should always check with airlines or the train provider to check whether their plans are affected.
Contact airlines to confirm flight status if booked to fly via Italian airports July 17. Do not check out of accommodations until onward travel is confirmed. Arrive at the airport early to prevent your seat from being allocated to a standby passenger.
