Holidaymakers face yet more disruption in Italy

 Wednesday, June 8, 2022 


UK holidaymakers are facing further disruption after two Italian unions called for a nationwide crew strike.

Pilots and flight attendants from airlines including Ryanair, EasyJet and Crewlink are set to strike for four hours from 10am until 2pm, according to Italian media.

Unions Italian Federation of Transport Workers (FILT) and Italian Union of Transport Workers (UILT) said the strike is over pay disputes, non-payment of sick days, summer leave and a lack of water and meals for the crew.

UILT said that if an agreement is not reached, this will be only the first of a series of protest actions that will make the summer ‘hot’.

Easyjet has warned its customers that there may be some disruptions to its schedule.

In a statement, the airline said that they are aware of possible multiple strike actions planned in Italy on June 8 impacting air traffic services. Like all airlines operating to and from Italy, they may see some disruption to our flying programme on this date.

Although this is outside of their control, they would like to reassure customers that they are doing all possible to minimise any disruption that may occur as a result of the strike action.

This comes after days of chaos at airports across the country, with easyJet forced to cancel at least 35 flights on Tuesday, with Gatwick the worst affected airport.

Hungarian carrier Wizz Air also scrapped at least seven flights to UK airports.
