EasyJet warns passengers of strike action affecting flights and ground handling services.

The airline has warned passengers that national strike action is taking place on Monday, October 11, in Italy. According to the airline, the strike action could affect airport services including ground handling activities.

Reportedly all airlines flying into and out of Italy may see their flights disrupted. EasyJet advises any customers flying on Monday to allow additional time to travel both to and from the airport. They also advise customers to check the status of their flights using the mobile app or the flight tracker.


EasyJet commented: “Should any flights be cancelled then we will contact customers on via email and SMS using the details provided at the time of booking and check in.

“For cancelled flights only, we advise customers not to travel to the airport but to transfer their flights free of charge or take a refund by logging onto Manage Bookings on easyJet.com or our Flight Tracker: easyjet.com/XXXX (Your flight number).

“In accordance with EU261 regulations, customers will not be entitled to claim for compensation as a result of the industrial action.

“Although this is outside of our control, we would like to reassure customers that we are doing all we can to minimise any disruption that may occur as a result of the strike action.”
