Due to a transport sector strike in Italy tomorrow 16 June (including a ground handling strike) several airlines are forced to cancel flights:

Alitalia reported through its official website that it was forced to cancel almost 180 domestic and international flights scheduled for 16 June, as well as some flights in the early morning of 17 June because of several transport sector strikes, which will be taking place on 16 June.

Flights departing from Italy will operate as usual between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m. and between 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., Rome time, on 16 June.

Passengers are kindly requested to check the status of their flight calling +39.06.65649 (from overseas)
or 800.65.00.55 (toll-free number from Italy) before going to the airport.

As a result of the Italian ground handling strike tomorrow easyJet has cancelled 16 flights.
