Air traffic controllers in Greece have announced that they will join a 24-hour strike on Thursday 16 March 2023. According to an announcement by their union EEEKE, the strike starts at 00:01 on Thursday and ends at 24:00 on the same day.

Under these conditions, flights from/to Greece will be affected by this air traffic controller strike. On March 16, all flights will be canceled between 12:01 am and midnight local time (10:01 GMT – 22:00 GMT) with only flyovers, emergency flights and search and rescue flights rescue, an official from the Civil Aeronautics Authority of Greece told Reuters.
