Italy faces strike by Ryanair and Vueling cabin crew on 1 October

Air travel disruption expected in Italy on 1 October.

Cabin crew and pilots from several low-cost airlines are to go on strike in Italy on Saturday 1 October, Italian trade unions Filt Cgil and Uiltrasporti have announced.

The industrial action will last 24 hours in the case of Ryanair, easyJet and Volotea, and four hours - from 13.00 until 17.00 - for Vueling.

Saturday's strike, which follows similar actions in June and July, has been called in protest over working conditions, salaries and employment contracts.

Italy's civil aviation authority ENAC reminds air travellers that flights are guaranteed during strikes from 07.00-10.00 and 18.00-21.00.
