Turkish Airlines announced on Wednesday the cancellation of flights to and from Greece due to an upcoming 24-hour strike in the country.
Greece’s air traffic controllers will join the strike on Thursday over the deadly train accident in the country.
“Our flights will be canceled from Istanbul to Athens and Thessaloniki, and vice versa, on Thursday,” the national flag carrier said in a statement.
On Feb. 28, a passenger train collided with a freight train around the town of Tempi in the northern Larissa province of Greece.
The official death toll stands at 57, including many university students and nine traincrew members.
