HUNDREDS of flights have been canceled this week amid more strikes across Europe.
This Friday there will be a 24-hour strike by air traffic control staff in Italy.
Flights to hotspots across Italy have been canceled due to the ENAV strike.
Italian airline ITA said it has been forced to cancel 200 flights affecting destinations including Rome and Milan.
Around 13 flights to and from London have also been cancelled.
The airline said it was working to rebook all passengers affected by the cancellations on other flights.
EasyJet has also warned passengers to expect disruptions but has not yet confirmed which flights have been cancelled.
They confirmed in a statement: “We have been informed of the nationwide strike action in Italy on Friday 21 October, which will affect air traffic control and groundhandling services.
“Like most airlines operating to and from Italy, there may be disruptions to our flight program on this date.
“We advise customers traveling to, from or within Italy on Friday 21 October to allow additional time for travel to and from the airport and to check the status of their flights on our flight tracker on our mobile app or website check over.”
Affected passengers will be contacted by the airline and asked to change their flights free of charge or request a refund.
Sun Online Travel has reached out to Ryanair and British Airways for comment.
Martin Lewis explained what to do if your flight is cancelled.
He explained: “If your flight is cancelled, you are always entitled to a refund or the next available flight.
“It doesn’t technically have to be on the same airline.”
