Greek civil aviation workers plan a five-day strike next week in protest at the long-term lease of 14 regional airports, complicating government efforts to implement a privatization program linked to the country's bailout.Authorities agreed to lease the airports to German operator Fraport last year and are now considering offering concessions for 23 others.Port workers have been on 48-hour rolling strikes since late May to protest the sale of Greece's two largest ports in Piraeus and in the northern Greek city of Thessaloniki .The 1.2-billion-euro ($1.35 billion) deal with Fraport and its Greek partner, energy group Copelouzos, covers the operation of 14 provincial airports in popular tourist islands including Corfu and Santorini.
