Passengers caught out as Wind Jet suspends flights

Help

The cash-strapped Italian budget airline, Wind Jet, has suspended all flights, leaving many passengers stranded.

The Sicily-based firm is now close to losing its operating licence after takeover talks with Alitalia failed.

Further disruption is expected as some 300,000 passengers across Italy have booked tickets with the airline in the coming weeks.

David Willey reports from Rome.
