Rome-Fiumicino Airport: strike does not cause chaos
Thanks to preventive flight cancellations and the information given to passengers
The 24-hour Italian national strike of the staff of handling companies and ground workers of air carriers has not caused any disruption at the moment at the "Leonardo da Vinci" airport of Rome-Fiumicino. Once the first three-hour protected time slot ended at 10:00, the situation in Terminals 1 and 3 of the airport is fluid and operations are regular, thanks to the preventive cancellation of some flights and the widespread information given to passengers.
In detail, the national airline ITA Airways has canceled 42 national flights across the entire network, of which 36 today, while it has guaranteed all international flights. Travellers who booked a flight on the day of the strike were invited by the company and the management company Aeroporti di Roma (AdR) to check the status of their flight before going to the airport.
