A number of trade unions representing employees of Alitalia are due to take industrial action on Wednesday 5 April 2017.

As a consequence, a substantial number of flights have been cancelled on Wednesday. In addition, there are a number of cancellations on Tuesday 4 April 2017 and Thursday 6 April 2017.

The background to the dispute is that Alitalia is currently in negotiations with its shareholders and banks over the airline’s future. Management have proposed a new business plan which would involve substantial redundancies which trade unions are protesting against.

Alitalia has published guidance for affected passengers which includes details of its rebooking policies.  A full list of cancellations is also available here.

If your flight is cancelled you have the option of a refund or an alternative fight up to Friday 14 April 2017.

The cancellations include the following flights between London Heathrow and London City Airports and Milan and Rome.

Please note that these are pre-planned cancellations.  There may well be additional cancellations due to other operational issues on the day.

You can check live flight information on the websites of Heathrow and London City airports on the day of travel.
