Dec. 15 (Bloomberg) -- A 12-hour strike by Cypriot air traffic controllers in protest over the government’s austerity measures is disrupting flights to and from Cyprus, Adamos Aspris, a spokesman for Larnaca and Paphos airports, said.

“A total of 79 flights to and from Cyprus scheduled for today are affected by the strike that started at 9 a.m.,” Aspris said in a telephone interview today. The number of canceled flights can’t be determined yet, he said.
