Seems the earth tremour felt in Greece today may affect aircraft leaving and arriving. Already up in NCL there is an XLA flight 'delayed'. Severe ATC slots imposed on flights - anyone know anymore?

Apparently Greek Radar was down. I had a 3 hour delay departing a flight from Rome, and it only got away when it did by avoiding Greek Airspace

Looking at Athens Airport things appear to be more or less normal, however a couple of UK Charters are heavily delayed ex MAN, LGW and NCL. Hope everyones ok in Greece - I believe there have been a couple of fatalities

Was on the ground in KLX when it happened. Got out ok, but Athens were telling everyone that all the Ionian Islands were closed and they had lost comms with them. Aircraft were diverting to Athens and Brinidisi when we left the freq.
