British Airways will cancel 216 flights from 16-28th Mar from London to destinations such as Italy, but also France, Austria, Belgium, Germany and Ireland, and even New York.

Ryanair will cut approximately 25% of flights to and from Italy from 17th Mar to 8th Apr.

British Airways has said they will contact customers of cancelled flights to offer rebookings on to other carriers, refunds or another flight with British Airways at a later date.
