Strike disrupts flights at Milan, Naples airports

A strike by workers at three Italian airports has caused flights to be cancelled on Wednesday, 29 May. EasyJet, the British-based budget airline, has cancelled dozens of flights into Milan’s Linate and Malpensa airports and Naples Capodichino airport.

A statement by the Naples airport warned passengers of delays to flights departing on Wednesday due to a strike by GESAC airport management staff.

Not all airlines have cancelled flights. Delta, which operates one flight daily from New York to Milan, and connecting services from the U.S. to Naples, has not altered its schedule.

Passengers planning to fly into or out of the affected airports on Wednesday should contact their airline well in advance of departure to confirm flight status
