According to an announcement by Ryanair the budget airline is set to launch of two new routes connecting Greece with Italy for the Summer 2019 schedule. As of April 2019, the airline will connect Corfu with Bologna and Rhodes with Rome with twice-weekly flights. The news comes as the airline struggles with a crew strike on Friday.
Pilots striking against Air France over a proposed expansion of the airline via subsidiary Transavia have apparently won. Air France and KLM have now announced their intention of dropping the Transavia Europe operation.
Despite assertions partner carriers would take up their slack in the even of a general strike, Croatia Airlines cancelled 22 flights on account of aircrew and pilots walking out. Today is the second day of a strike versus the airline over layoffs and pay cuts strikers say they cannot overcome.
