Italian Trade Unions Filt-Cgil, Fit-Cisl, Uiltrasporti, Ugl-Ta, USB and CUB have confirmed that a 24-hour strike will take place on 5th April 2017.
On the same day, trade unions ANPAC and ANPAV have also confirmed a four-hour strike from 12 pm to 6 pm.
Alitalia has cancelled a number of flights and modified its domestic and international flight schedule between late evening on 4th April and early morning on 6th April.
On 5th April, flights departing during the “guaranteed period” (07:00-10:00 and 18:00-21:00 local time) will operate as scheduled.
The airline has taken measures to minimise inconvenience to its customers, by rebooking as many of the passengers affected by cancellations as possible on the first available flights.
Bigger aircraft will operate on several domestic and international routes on the day of the strike to carry as many passengers as possible, thereby reducing disruption to customers.
Call centre staff has been increased and additional staff will be on hand at the airports of Rome Fiumicino and Milan Linate to assist customers.
Alitalia customers scheduled to travel during the aforementioned period should contact Alitalia at or their ticket provider to check their flight status prior to arriving at the airport.
