Greek air traffic controllers have announced their participation in a 24-hour strike on February 28th, called by the ADEDY public sector union. 

The Hellenic Air Traffic Controllers’ Union is calling on its members to join the strike in protest of the government’s austerity measures. This action follows similar strikes by other public sector unions in recent months, highlighting growing discontent with the current economic climate.

While the exact details of “flights provided for by the current legal framework” are yet to be confirmed, they are likely to be limited to emergency medical transports and other essential services. Airlines are expected to announce cancellations in the coming days, urging passengers to rebook or choose alternative travel plans.

This strike is likely to have significant impact on travelers, businesses, and the tourism industry. Passengers with flights scheduled for February 28th are strongly advised to contact their respective airlines immediately for updates and alternative arrangements.
