Flight disruption expected in Greece on Tuesday due to stoppage by air traffic controllers

Greek traffic controllers have decided to take part in Tuesday’s general strike, leading to disruption to flights in and out of Greece.

The union representing civil aviation employees (OSYPA) said its members would walk off the job between noon and 4 p.m.

Only emergency or military flights will be able to take off and land during that time.

Passengers are advised to check with the airlines before setting off on their journeys.
