(ANSA) - Rome, August 13 - Windjet passengers are facing
disruption after the cash-strapped Sicilian low-cost carrier
Windjet suspended operations at the weekend.
Alitalia and other carriers are helping put Windjet
passengers find alternative flights, but the travellers must pay
a supplement.
At Rome's Fiumicino airport, some 200 Israeli nationals,
scheduled to fly to Tel Aviv spent Saturday night at the
terminal while other flights to Italian cities were also
cancelled.
Further disruption looks likely as about 300,000 passengers
hold Windjet tickets for upcoming flights.
Alitalia said Monday it had re-routed 5,800 Windjet
travellers and has added 20 extra flights to its Sicilian
schedule.
A crisis centre has been set up by Italy's aviation
authorities to help stranded passengers during the August
holiday season.
Windjet's website on Monday merely directed passengers to
call a helpline.
The company has been struggling for some time.
