A strike announced by the Civil Aviation Service staff union for next Wednesday may disrupt flights on that day, especially at regional airports. The strike is being held in protest against a draft bill tabled in Parliament to reorganise Greece's civil aviation service.

The civil aviation staff union federation OSYPA has called a 24-hour strike this Wednesday, accusing the Infrastructure, Transport and Networks ministry that the draft bill undermines the CAS, leads to the dismissal of CAS staff and also privatises state airports.

Whether the strike actually takes place will depend on a court ruling, however, since the management has asked that the strike be declared illegal.
