Another period of Greek industrial action started again last night resulting in airlines warning passengers of potential delays and disruption. Air traffic controllers went on a strike from midnight last night and is expected to last 48 hours.

British Airways and easyJet said flights to and from Greece would be affected tomorrow and Thursday.

EasyJet is offering passengers booked on flights from Gatwick, Manchester, Liverpool and Bristol to Athens and the Greek islands tomorrow and Thursday the option to transfer their booking to another flight.

BA said passengers should check the status of their flight before travelling to the airport.

All existing customers whose policies were purchased prior to Tuesday 18th October 2011 12:00 GMT will still have claims considered under the Travel Delay, Abandonment and Missed Departure sections of their polices.

Due to the above, please note that any policies purchased after Tuesday 18th October 2011 12:00 GMT will not be covered under the policy for these strikes for Travel Delay, Abandonment and Missed Departure claims.

Please note that the airlines should make themselves responsible for offering clients alternate flights / compensation for additional accommodation and so these elements would not be covered under the policy.
