Athens International Airport…

Passengers at Athens International Airport are seen waiting patiently yesterday for a four-hour work stoppage by air-traffic controllers to end. Meanwhile, data released by the Association of Greek Tourism Enterprises (SETE) showed that the number of foreigners visiting Greece in the first nine months of the year fell 0.57 percent on an annual basis to 9.47 million. SETE counts visitors entering Greece via the country’s 13 largest airports. Growth rates were largest in Kos and Rhodes.
