Greek air traffic controllers are to take part in a general strike tomorrow, leading to the disruption of flights into and out of the country.

Members of the Greek civil aviation employees union OSYPA are due to walk out between 12:00 and 16:00 local time in protest at further cuts to public funding and jobs.

Several airlines are to cancel or amend their flight schedules in response.

Olympic Air will cancel a number of flights from Athens to Samos, Mytilini, Santorini and Leros, and will amend other services, while EasyJet says it will change the timings of a number of flights.
