Italian and Portuguese ATC strikes

Airlines flying to Europe are likely to be affected by strikes by air traffic controllers on the Continent over the next two days. Italian Air Traffic Control are on strike from 1pm local time until 5pm local time, while the Portuguese controllers are on strike between 7am to 9am local time and 2pm to 4pm local time.

easyJet says the strikes will have “a significant impact on our flights during these periods” and that it has retimed a number of its flights. British Airways (BA) has also re-timed and is using larger aircraft to ease problems caused by cancellations. BA has cancelled a number of flights to and from Italy, while Ryanair has cancelled 80 flights from Wednesday.
