Airlines are gearing up for strike action in Greece tomorrow (Thursday) when the country's airports will be closed to international and domestic flights.
EasyJet confirmed it has cancelled flights to and from Greece and the Greek Islands but did not disclose how many.
"We are doing everything possible to minimise the impact of the strike on our customers, and have taken the decision to proactively cancel a number of flights, allowing customers to reorganise their journeys," it said.
"We will communicate to affected customers directly via SMS using the details provided at the time of booking."
It also advised passengers to allow plenty of extra time to get to the airport and consider alternative transport options where possible, as public transport services will be also affected.
Olympic Air has already cancelled 36 scheduled flight sectors in light of the 24-hour walk-out by public sector unions, including air traffic controllers.
Ryanair said it was continuing to monitor the situation and will advise customers with the latest strike information once received.
"We call on the EU and Greek Government to intervene and prevent European travellers being affected by yet more unjustified ATC strikes," said a spokesman.
The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office is advising travellers to check with their airline or tour operator before travelling.
"Public services such as hospitals may also be affected," it added.
