Ryanair Condemns Italian ATC Strikes

08 Apr 2016

“Due to an Italian ATC strike we regret that we have to cancel 108 flights to/from/within Italy tomorrow (Sat 9 Apr). All affected customers have been contacted by email and SMS text message and advised of their options of a full refund, or rebooking on to the next available flight, or onto an alternative route.

We sincerely apologise to all customers disrupted by these unjustified strikes – the 5th such ATC strike in the last 3 weeks – by ATC unions who are holding European consumers to ransom. We call on the Italian Government and EU Commission to take action to prevent any further ATC disruptions.

We encourage all customers to sign our online petition, “Keep Europe’s Skies Open” (http://www.keepeuropesskiesopen.com), which we will present to the EU Commission and the EU Parliament to force them to finally take action to protect consumers from these unjustified ATC strike disruptions.”
