Greek Strike
               Greek General Strike?

​Good news for 2018 Direct link from Athens Airport to Piraeus Port

When Greek airports strike it may go hand in hand with airlines, taxi and Greek ferry operators. You could be stuck on the islands as ferries stay moored to the port. Your flight could will be brought forward, delayed or even cancelled. Particularly with Greek national airlines Olympic and Aegean Airlines and SkyExpress

2016 Several airports are now under German control. More air traffic controllers have been recruited. When firemen strike airports close.
May 2016 Saw a long ferry workers strike, Aegean and Olympic put on extra flights.
Air traffic control union is OSYPA

2017 Germans spending in first four years of owning 14 Greek airports - 70 million. Upgrades to Thessaloniki, Corfu, Cephalonia (Argostoli) Kos and Lesvos (Mytilene)
