Greek strikes to affect Athens air travel

28-Jun-2011 11:13 AM

Greece's Athens International Airport air traffic controllers will cease work for between 08:00 and 12:00 and 18:00 and 22:00 on 28-Jun-2011 as part of national industrial action to protest the government’s austerity measures (Bloomberg, 28-Jun-2011). The strikes will cause the cancellation of all services to and from Athens International. Aegean Airlines will reschedule 97 services and cancel 26 today while Olympic Air will cancel and reschedule 52 services.
