No intercity trains, airport service for three days due to rail strike

Intercity trains will be sidelined for three days from Saturday due a strike by staff at the Hellenic Railways Organization (OSE).

The strike means there will be no metro service to or from Athens International Airport. Metro trains on Line 3 will stop at and start from Doukissis Plakentias station. The rest of the line to the airport is operated by OSE.

Also, Syntagma metro station will be closed Sunday and Monday due to police orders as school pupils hold their annual Independence Day parade in Syntagma Square on Saturday, while the military parade will take place on Monday.

It is likely the stations will open after the parades have finished.
