Travel Alert: Greece [April 5, 2022]

Travel Alert

Major trade unions in Greece plan to strike and protest in Greece April 6 to denounce the Russian offensive against Ukraine and call for government intervention to mitigate related price increases. Members of various groups, including ADEDY, PAME, the Hellenic Air Traffic Controllers Association, and the General Confederation of Greek Workers, will observe a 24-hour nationwide ferry and air traffic controller strike, as well as public transport strikes in Athens. Bus drivers nationwide will strike from the start of service until 09:00 and again from 21:00 to the end of service.

The strike is likely to prompt significant disruptions to flight and ferry services, as well as to public transport in Athens, including Metro, bus, tram, and trolley bus services. Residual disruptions could last into the morning of April 7th. The labor action will also likely prompt the temporary closure of government offices, public banks and hospitals; closures will likely be most widespread in Athens. Emergency services will probably still be provided at most hospitals, but delays in receiving care are possible during the strike.
