Italy travel chaos as Mount Etna and Stromboli erupt – tourists warned as flights axed


Mount Etna, Italy’s largest volcano located in Sicily, has been erupting over recent days.

The volcanic activity has escalated, with incredible images captured of lava spewing from its largest crater.

Travellers at Catania airport – a major international gateway to Sicily – experienced significant delays. 

A minimum of 90 flights departing and arriving at Catania airport were cancelled, causing disruption for approximately 15,000 passengers.

Ryanair was hit the hardest, being forced to cancel 42 flights – the highest number among all airlines. Meanwhile, Italy’s Stromboli volcano – one of the most active in the world – has been spilling lava into the sea following a major eruption.  

The two volcanoes are about 180km away from eachother.
