Greek flights re-commence after strike

Swiss flights to and from Greece should resume this evening after they were all cancelled on Saturday morning.

Greek airlines as well as airlines serving Greece took the action due to an air traffic controller strike, which is expected to last until Thursday.

Airlines Aegean and Olympic cancelled their international flights, and Ryanair cancelled 110 flights over the weekend.

Greek air traffic controllers are protesting against the implementation of reforms that remove their administrative role, without prior discussion with their union.
