Several trade unions representing air transport workers nationwide have called for a strike on Friday, July 26. Alitalia airline employees and Milan Linate (LIN) airport staff have announced a strike from 00:01 to 23:59 (local time), while trade unions representing other air transport workers, including at Milan Malpensa (MXP), Bologna (BLQ), and Verona (VRN) airports, are expected to strike from 10:00 to 14:00.
Delays, modified timetables, and last-minute cancelations are likely on July 26, particularly during the work stoppage.
Transportation-related strikes are frequent in Italy and can be highly disruptive. However, in accordance with Italian law, minimum levels of services must be guaranteed during all industrial and social actions.
Potentially impacted travelers are advised to monitor developments to the situation, confirm the status of their flights prior to departure, and to contact their airline for additional information.
