  • [01] Greek tourism increase to exceed 11.5% in 2005, Tourism Minister says

    Minister of Tourism Development Dimitris Avramopoulos expressed his optimism regarding the tourism industry, estimating that 2005 will see an increase of more than 11.5% in tourist arrivals compared with 2004, in comments he made on state television NET on Friday.

    He noted that the outlook is positive for September and October as well, judging by the number of tourism packages already purchased.

    Avramopoulos also urged tourism industry professionals to pay particular attention to the quality of services and products they provide.

    [02] Memorial service held at crash site of Helios Boeing 737

    A memorial service was conducted on Friday by Archbishop of Athens and all Greece Christodoulos and members of the Holy Synod at Grammatiko, the site northeast of Athens where all 121 people on board Helios Airways flight ZU522 died when the plane went down nearly two weeks ago.

    Of the 121 victims, three bodies remain missing.

    Of the 118 that have been recovered, all but two have been identified.

    Ninety bodies were identified through DNA testing, while 26 were recognised by relatives from their features and personal belongings.

    Reportedly, one of the two unidentified remains may belong to the plane's pilot Hans-Juergen Marten. His daughter has been contacted and is expected to send a DNA sample to help with identification of her father's remains.

    Results of the DNA testing are expected to be released within a few days.

    Chief investigator and head of the Greek airline safety committee Akrivos Tsolakis is due to visit Cyprus on Monday.
