Domestic flights disrupted by strong winds in Aegean

Strong winds of up to 8 Beaufort in the Aegean disrupted flights to and from the Greek islands on Friday, while some flights using smaller aircraft had to be cancelled outright as they were unable to take off and land.

Among the latter were scheduled flights from Thessaloniki to the island of Samos and from Samos to Thessaloniki, and flight 204 from Athens to Rhodes, where the pilot abandoned attempts to land in Rhodes airport and decided to return to Athens.
