Ryanair and easyJet are among the airlines to have cancelled hundreds of flights to and from Italy ahead of a national strike on Friday against labour reforms.

Ryanair has cancelled 182 domestic and international flights, with further cancellations and disruption expected, the company said in a statement on its website. Some easyJet flights have also been cancelled, as air traffic controllers strike between 1.00pm and 5.00pm on Friday.

Every airline flying to and from Italy, as well as those flying within Italian airspace, will be affected.

The country’s flagship airline, Alitalia, has also preemptively cancelled flights. Intercontinental routes from Rome Fiumicino and Milan Malpensa airports will not be affected..

Passengers have been advised to check their flight status before travelling, while journeys to and from Italian airports are also likely to be affected by the general strike.
