Greek flights to be disrupted by air traffic strike

Travellers to Greece face five days of disruption next week due to a planned walkout by air traffic controllers.

The country’s Federation of Civil Aviation unions have announced a strike from Monday until Friday – just ahead of the main summer peak getaway period.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office, issuing an updated travel advisory, warned: “There’s likely to be some disruption to a number of domestic and international flights in Greece, but it’s not yet clear which airports or services will be affected.”

People due to travel to Greece between June 20-24 are being advised to contact their airline or travel company for more information.

Meanwhile the FCO warned that transport strikes continue to affect some rail services across France and in Paris.

Nationwide protests have been announced for June 23 and 28 – during the height of Euro 2016.

This follows the latest action by French air traffic controllers on Tuesday which led to more than 100 flights being cancelled.
