  • [01] SETE: end ground service monopoly

    The Association of Greek Tourism Enterprises (SETE) on Tuesday urged the government to terminate state-run Olympic Airlines' monopoly in ground handling services at 33 Greek airports.

    In a statement to the press, SETE stressed that prices were significantly lower in the five major airports of the country (Athens, Thessaloniki, Irakleio, Rhodes and Corfu) where no monopoly exists for offer ground services, while service has improved significantly.

    SETE said the monopoly in ground services at the more than two dozen airports breached free market rules, while it was against government's policy statements.

    SETE also stressed that IACA (the International Air Carrier Association) has briefed its members that ground handling services were expected to be fully deregulated in Greece and that a number of tenders were expected to be tabled soon.
