Flights to and from Italy face cancellation and disruption today due to a walkout by public and private sector workers.

Passengers are being urged to check their flight status before travelling to the airport.

EasyJet warned that the strike action would go on all day.

“EasyJet’s flights to and from all Italian airports will be affected, as well as all Italian public transport, and we apologise for any inconvenience that the strike may cause, despite this being beyond the airline’s control,” the carrier said.

“We are doing everything possible to minimise the impact to our customers, however we have had to proactively cancel a number of flights to and from Italy.”

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office said: “Nationwide strike action may cause disruption to air, rail and sea travel during October and November.

“Large demonstrations are expected to take place in central Rome on Saturday (October 25). You should avoid all demonstrations and follow the advice given by local authorities.”

Luton airport called on passengers planning to fly to and from Italy to check with their airline due to public sector industrial action affecting travel plans.
