Event

Several unions have called on airport employees to hold a 24-hour nationwide strike on Tuesday, February 25, from 00:01 until 23:59 (local time).

Flight disruptions, such as delays and cancelations, are therefore possible as a result of the strike action.

Individuals traveling to or from Italy are advised to monitor developments to the situation, anticipate disruptions to airport operations, confirm flight reservations, contact your airline for more information, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
