Planes will remain grounded in Greek airports as of Sunday

Planes will remain grounded in Greek airports as of Sunday due to the rolling 24-hour strikes called by air traffic controllers, who are protesting against the new legislation approved by parliament that foresees the restructuring of the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

The strikes have been scheduled for Sunday (Oct. 9), Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, from 00:01 to 23:59. During those days, there will no flights to and from Greek airports.

After its meeting with Infrastructure Minister Christos Spirtzis and the head of the CAA Konstantinos Lyntzerakos, the union said it insists on taking labour action.
