ATHENS – A planned two-day strike for Oct. 4-5 by Greek air traffic controllers has been struck down by a court ruling which deemed it unlawful.

An Athens court said the strike called by the workers’ union was unlawful. The controllers were upset over a ministerial decision giving the Public Debt Management Agency (PDMA) access to airport fees which were supposed to help the airport but now can be used for other reasons.

The country’s international airport is a hub for travel in Southeast Europe and connecting flights throughout the region and to Asia and Australia as well.

Greece is heading toward a second straight record-breaking tourist season that saw big increases in arrivals at airports, helping push the country toward recovery from a crushing economic crisis.
