We get notices occasionally from our protectors in Athens, The US Embassy. The embassy informs us that:

“Greek civil aviation employees – including air traffic controllers – have announced plans for a four-day strike, which is expected to cause cancellation of domestic and international flights throughout Greece.
 
Currently the strike is scheduled to start at 9:01 p.m. Saturday, October 8, and run through 8:59 p.m. Monday, October 10.  It will start again at 9:01 p.m. Wednesday, October 12, and continue through 8:59 p.m. Thursday, October 13.  Strike plans could change, so travelers are advised to monitor news reports and check with their airlines well ahead of scheduled departures.”

Chances are not only Americans will be affected. If you have plans to travel by air this weekend or next week better check with your airline (or carrier as the carriers like to say).

Dirfi (Greek: Δίρφη, older form Δίρφυς – Dirfys) is a mountain in the central part of the island of Euboea, Greece. At 1,743 m

    • Don’t thank me, thank the US Embassy though I’m sure the UK Foreign Office has similar info on their website.

      Luckily the Athens Embassy sends out very periodic email alerts though usually only to warn people about “dangerous” demonstrations in Athens.
