Strike set to affect Italy flights

Airlines have cancelled some flights to Italy on Friday as the country is set to hold a 24-hour general strike.

The industrial action is due to start from midnight and there is expected to be disruption to flights as well as trains and other types of public transport across Italy.

Easyjet said it had cancelled some flights to Italy with customers offered a free transfer to another flight or full refund.

Ryanair said that the strike would affect security at Bologna, Pisa and Genoa airports and urged passengers to arrive at these three airports earlier than usual.

Workers at Italian carrier Alitalia are set to go on strike for four hours on Friday from 12.00 to 16.00 local time, despite talks earlier this week between unions and the airline.
