Air-traffic controller and Alitalia strikes combined affect 72 Spanish flights crossing Italian air space
thinkSPAIN , Monday, March 20, 2017

ITALIAN air-traffic controller strikes have grounded 72 flights in Spain destined for the Mediterranean country today (Monday).

The shut-down was planned for 13.00 to 17.00, and comes at the same time as national airline Alitalia's four-day strike, meaning flights to and from Italy and across its air space will be affected.

Alitalia staff are striking over the company's plans to make 2,000 employees redundant as part of a radical cost-cutting drive to save €1 billion by the year 2021.

Some of the 72 flights between Italy and Spain on all airlines, or which cross Italy en route east, may be cancelled and others may be delayed.

Passengers are recommended to check with their airline before setting off for the airport.
