Air traffic controllers (ATC) across Italy plan to carry out a four-hour strike from 1100-1500 local time (1200-1600 UTC) on 25 November 2019. Unions called for the labor action due to mismanagement of the Alitalia bankruptcy, the refinancing of the Air Transport Solidarity Fund and general work conditions. The strike at Perugia San Francesco d’Assisi-Umbria International Airport (LIRZ/PEG) and Marche Airport (LIPY/AOI) is expected to last for 24 hours. Eurocontrol has warned that flight operations are expected to be affected throughout the day, but Italian law guarantees minimum flight services. Travelers should contact their respective airlines for more information on possible disruptions during the strike period.
