AEGEAN and Olympic Air will cancel all domestic and international flights which were due to operate on Sunday and Monday and reschedule and cancel flights due to operate on Saturday, October 8. AEGEAN will release another announcement for the flights that will be affected on 11 to 13 October.

Sky Express announced that it will cancel all flights for Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Ryanair will cancel four flights (three international and one domestic) on Saturday night and all flights — 106 in total — to/from and within Greece on Sunday. The airline said that more cancellations and delays will take place on Monday.
