  • [01] Ships collide in port

    The ferry boat "Rodanthi" collided with the high-speed passenger ferry "Aiolos Express" as the former was preparing to leave the port of Piraeus at Monday evening, heading for the islands of Paros, Naxos, Ios and Thira, port authorities said.

    The "Eolos Express" was on a trial run in preparation for scheduled routes to Aegean islands that would be beginning in the coming days.

    All 115 passengers on board, none of whom were injured, disembarked from the ship that remains docked and that will be carrying out its schedule after being inspected for its seaworthiness to be confirmed.
