Air traffic walkout to cause upheaval on Wednesday

A four-hour walkout by air traffic controlers scheduled to take place between noon and 4 p.m. on Wednesday is expected to lead to cancelations and delays to domestic and international flights.

Olympic Air on Monday announced the cancelation of several scheduled domestic flights.

Air travelers scheduled to travel on Wednesday are advised to contact their airlines for information about the status of their flights.

The air traffic controlers’ walkout has been organized to coincide with a 24-hour general strike planned for Wednesday by the country?s two main labor unions. The strike is to close down government offices and schools, leave hospitals on emergency staff and disrupt public transport.
