  • [01] Athens airport freezes rates

    Athens' Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport on Tuesday announced that it was freezing all airport charges and fees (landing, parking, safety, terminal and ground services) this year, while promoting a package of additional discounts to airline companies in order to overcome whatever effects of the ongoing economic crisis.

    The Athens Airport presented an "incentives programme for 2010" aimed at helping airline companies significantly lower their operating spending.

    Presenting the plan, Yiannis Parashis, the airport's managing director, said the decision to freeze charges - without inflation adjustment - aims at offering support to airline companies and maintaining the attractiveness of the Athens market.
