Turkish Airlines Cancels Flights to, from Italy Due to Planned Strike

(MENAFN) Türkiye's national carrier, Turkish Airlines, has had to cancel several flights to and from Italy due to a strike planned for Sunday, April 2. The airline announced that the affected flights included TK 1323 Istanbul-Bologna, TK 1324 Bologna-Istanbul, TK 1871 Istanbul-Venice, TK 1872 Venice-Istanbul, TK 1895 Istanbul-Milan, and TK 1896 Milan-Istanbul.

The planned strike is a nationwide four-hour industrial action that multiple unions representing airport staff in Italy have organized. The strike is expected to cause significant disruption to air travel across the country, with many airlines forced to cancel or delay flights.

Turkish Airlines has advised its passengers who are affected by the cancellations to contact their offices or travel agents to rearrange their flights. The airline has also apologized for any inconvenience caused by the strike.

The cancellation of flights is a significant blow to Turkish Airlines, which has been working hard to restore its operations after being hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. The airline has been gradually increasing its flight schedules as travel restrictions ease, but this latest strike will cause further disruption to its plans.

The strike in Italy is just one of many industrial actions that have affected air travel across Europe in recent months. Many airport staff and airline workers have been protesting against working conditions, job losses, and changes to employment contracts.

The cancellation of flights is not only frustrating for passengers but can also have a significant impact on the airline's bottom line. The aviation industry has been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, and any further disruption will only make it more challenging for airlines to recover from the financial losses they have suffered.
