Flights have been cancelled ahead of a strike by Italian ground handlers in Bologna and Venice airports tomorrow (Wednesday).

Ryanair has been forced to cancel 15 flights from Bologna airport.

EasyJet has grounded four flights and will divert another four to Verona. The walkout is to be staged for eight hours from 10am local time.

Ryanair said that in addition to the cancellations, a number of flights to Bologna will be diverted to Milan’s Bergamo airport where passengers will be transferred by coach to Bologna.

EasyJet said: “Like all airlines, easyJet’s flights to and from Venice and Bologna will be affected and as a result we have taken the decision to cancel four flights, and route four flights to Verona where passengers will be taken to their final destinations by coach.

“Although this is outside of our control, we would like to apologise for an inconvenience and would like to reassure you we are doing everything possible to minimise any disruption as a result of the industrial action.”
