CORFU. Civil Aviation Authority employees are taking part in the ADEDY strike.

Greek airports will be operating with safety skeleton staff on Wednesday, February 28th, as air traffic controllers have decided to participate in the 24-hour strike announced by ADEDY (Civil Servant's Confederation).

If controllers' strike goes ahead and the Hellenic Civil Aviation Authority does not appeal against it, on that day there will be no flights to or from Greek airports.

As a result, there will be cancellation or merging of all commercial flights in Greece.

The strike declared by ADEDY also involves the employees of the Hellenic Civil Aviation Authority (HCAA).

Those taking part:

  • Federation of HCAA Unions,
  • Air Traffic Safety Electronic Engineers Union
  • Greek Air Traffic Controllers Union

During the ADEDY strike on Wednesday, February 28, from 00:01 to 23:59, Security Personnel and Minimum Guaranteed Service personnel are designated, the personnel of the 24-hour shift and the personnel of the OFE, according to the work schedule, which numerically exceeds 33.3% of the staff and which will secure/be employed for the execution of one-third of the usual work, i.e., 100% of flights falling within the Athens FIR, VIP flights, flights of the Military Aviation participating in operational missions and scheduled exercises, flights of aircraft facing unusual situations or in emergency situations, hospital flights, humanitarian aid flights, search and rescue flights.
