Easyjet cancels Milan flights ahead of strike

28 May 2013 by GrahamSmith

Easyjet has cancelled more than 60 flights to and from Milan tomorrow due to planned industrial action.

The budget airline made the decision to cancel some services to and from Linate and Malpensa airports including several flights to Gatwick and Luton ahead of Wednesday’s 24-hour strike.

SEA Group, which runs both Milan airports, confirmed that the 24-hour stoppage would go ahead and the company will offer live updates about the impact of the strike on its Twitter feed.

“In order to minimise the disruption to passengers and to allow sufficient time to make alternative plans, Easyjet has taken the decision to proactively cancel some flights to and from both airports,” said the airline in a statement.

“All passengers travelling to or from the Milan airports on that day are strongly recommended to check the status of your flight before heading to the airport to avoid any unnecessary disruption.”

Easyjet has also rerouted some flights from Gatwick and Luton to Turin, and is then providing road transport to Milan.
