Athens International Airport air traffic control staff to hold 24-hour strike action

Greece’s Athens International Airport announced (08-Feb-2010) there will be no flights to/from the airport between midnight and 2359 on 10-Feb-2010, due to a 24-hour strike of the Union of Greek Air Traffic Controllers. The strike, held with the country’s civil servants' union, ADEDY, is over the Greek Government’s plans to deal with the country’s debt, which includes wage freezes and bonus cuts for public employees (AFP/Monsters and Critics, 09-Feb-2010). Olympic Air, Aegean Airlines and Cyprus Airways have cancelled all services during the day (Famagusta Gazette, 09-Feb-2010).
