A national strike of Air Traffic Controllers and of the Air Transport sector is expected on Friday 21 October 2022.

The industrial action could affect the schedule of ITA Airways flights on 21 October. The airline was therefore forced to cancel some national flights scheduled for 21 October

List of cancelled flights is available here

To minimize inconvenience, bigger aircraft will operate on international routes in order to carry as more passengers as possible on 21 October: 20% of travelers will fly on the same day.

ITA Airways invites all customers already holding tickets for travels on 21 October to check the status of their flights before going to the airport on website, or calling the airline at the toll-free number 800 93 60 90 (within Italy), at +39 +39 06 8596 0020 (from abroad), or contacting the travel agency where the ticket was bought.

Travellers holding tickets and eventually affected by cancellation or schedule change of ITA Airways flights on 21 October can rebook their travel at no additional cost or penalty, or ask for a full ticket refund (only if the flight is cancelled or the delay on departure exceeds 5 hours) by 28 October.
