April 6 Strike in Greece to Affect Flights, Ferry Services

UPDATE: Although air traffic controllers had announced participation in Wednesday’s strike, the Hellenic Civil Aviation Authority (HCAA) announced that the strike was ruled illegal by a Greek court and that all flights will take place as scheduled in Greek airports.

Airline flights and ferry services in Greece will be disrupted on Wednesday, April 6, due to a 24-hour nationwide strike called by Greece’s largest civil service umbrella union ADEDY and the country’s main private sector union GSEE.

Both the Greek Air Traffic Controllers’ Association and the Pan-Hellenic Seamen’s Federation (PNO) will participate in the general strike.

In an announcement, PNO said that seamen are calling on the government to take action against uninsured labor and establish a permanent system of financial support and protection for the unemployed.

Those who have booked tickets for travel on April 6 are advised to check with their travel agents or contact local port authorities and airports for further information.

With regard to public transportation, workers of OASA buses will hold a work stoppage on April 6. Buses will operate only between 9am – 9pm. All other means of public transportation will not be running for 24 hours.
