June 15th no flights due to strike

Air controllers will

take part in the national strike so there will be no flights at all on june 15.

Unless a court rules the strike illegal.

Thanks Tsopanos. I sure hope not I am only in Greece 3 days so if my flight is cancelled on the 16th, sadly I will not go at all.

No don't worry the strike is only for the 15th still waiting to see if the court will rule it legal or not.

Thanks for the information tsopanos. Just wondering if the potential strike could affect private bus tours. We leave from Athens for Delphi on the 14th with a planned return to Athens on the 15th and then we have a ferry departure to Santorini scheduled for June 16th. We just want to make sure that we can get back to Athens for our departure on the 16th as it is a morning departure to Santorini. Thanks for any advices that you could offer.

I don't think it would,if you depart on the 14th it would be advisable to check with the tour company for the return to Athens leg.

It's good luck though that you are going to Santorini on the 16th one day earlier the strike would have caused you a minor disturbance.
