Several flights to/from Milan cancelled.
Ireland-based low-cost airline Ryanair, which operates many arrivals and departures at Milan’s third airport, Orio al Serio, has published a provisional list of cancelled flights, and has promised more information soon.
Passengers are angry that the airline cancelled flights without providing them with enough information. The reason for the cancellations, airline CEO Michael O’Leary said, was to work through a backlog of leave not taken by pilots and other crew members.
The lists of the cancelled flights are now available for Tuesday and Wednesday, 19 and 20 September on this page of the Ryanair website. The same page promises that a full list of cancelled flights will be published between today and tomorrow.
On Tuesday 19 September, four departures from Milan and three arrivals are listed. For Wednesday 20 September, the list shows three arrivals and three departures cancelled.
The same page also explains passengers’ options, and how to apply for a refund or change a cancelled flight without extra charge.
Ryanair has recently confirmed that it is interested in buying parts of Italy's ailing Alitalia.
