Air Traffic Control strike announced for 11/5/2011

Both the air traffic controllers and the federation of associations of Hellenic civil aviation authorities announced that they will participate in the 24hrs strike of 11 May 2011.

The good news is that they will perform a 4 hour work halt between 12.00-16.00 pm and not a 24 hour strike. If you are travelling to Greece or within Greece, you should advise the airline(s) you are flying with.
