Flights disrupted by Greece strike today, French strike threat next week

Flights into Greece may face disruption today as Greek air traffic controllers are among those taking industrial action today between 10am and 1pm local time.

EasyJet has had to re-schedule 14 flights to destinations in Greece, Italy and Turkey but does not expect to announce any cancellations.

“The impact of the strike action is expected to be minimal with no cancellations,” the airline said.

However there may be more strikes ahead, this time in France. Eurocontrol is warning that French unions could walk out on Monday evening and Tuesday, although whether or not air traffic control will be involved is not certain yet.
