Thousands of workers are expected to participate in the general strike that will take place next Thursday (26/1). Airport, port, hotel and construction workers will take part in the general strike, among others.
Speaking to SigmaLive the Senior Director of Aviation Development, Marketing & Hermes Airports contact person, Maria Kouroupi, said that there will be no flight cancellations, but it seems that the airlines will change their flight schedules so that travelers are not affected by the general strike.
He clarified that the final schedule for the flights is expected to be ready in the afternoon (so today) and the public will be mobilized to be informed about the changes. He also pointed out that he still does not know which workers and which companies of the airport will participate in the general strike.
