Air traffic controllers' 24 hrs strike confirmed for 5/10/2011

The air traffic controllers' association confirmed with a press release their participation in the 24 hours general strike of next Wednesday, 5 October.

We would like to remind you that the courts have no authority in strikes organized by the public servants' unions so there will be no flights on 5/10/2011 (unless the atc association changes its mind).

Wednesday for Diagoras means heavy traffic, especially from the UK, so get in contact with your ariline/T.O./travel agent as soon as possible.

We will continuously update this post whenever affected flights are officially announced by airlines.

UPDATE 2/10/2011
Easyjet has just announced that it offers free of charge rescheduling for its Wednesday flights to/from Greece. (SOURCE)
As for Rhodes, both Easyjet's UK routes (Gatwick-Rhodes&Liverpool-Rhodes) are affected.

UPDATE 3/10/2011
So far only Aegean has announced on its website cancellations and alterations. Of course this doesn't mean that airlines don't inform their customers via other ways (personal e-mails, phone calls etc.). We will update affected flights whenever official info becomes available.
