Italian air traffic controllers (ATC) will strike again Saturday, July 23, which could result in numerous flight cancellations during one of the busiest summer holiday travel days, European lobby group Airlines for Europe(A4E) said in a June 17 statement.

“It is unacceptable that airlines and their customers can be repeatedly punished by these unjustified strikes. The European Commission (EC) and governments must act immediately to protect the rights of millions of European travelers,” A4E MD Thomas Reynaert said.

He added: “Later this month our member airlines’ CEOs will hold a Summit in Brussels on Air Mobility and Prosperity to discuss technological, operational and political means to minimize strike effects. It's time to take action.”
