Lefkada, Meganissi Waterways Documentation Submitted

Waterways company Water Airports SA submitted this week to the transport ministry the relevant documentation for the management of waterways on Lefkada and Meganissi.

The plans drawn up by Water Airports include operation, security and emergency action details as well as a business outline, maps and charts. The project will be carried out in collaboration with the Ionian Islands Region.

Ionian Islands Regional Governor Theodoros Galiatsatos said he also expected documentation would soon be submitted for facilities on the islands of Kefalonia and Ithaki, and added that licensing for the Zakynthos waterway was also moving forward.

Galiatsatos said he expects the network of waterways in the Ionian Island Region and in Western Greece to be operational in the upcoming period, and referred to the positive impact of the venture on the local economy, tourism, transportation and on social cohesion.

“With the licensing of the aforementioned waterways, together with the three waterways already licensed (Corfu, Paxos and Patra) … a suitable network of waterways will be in place in the Ionian to ensure the viable operation of seaplane flights,” said Water Airports President Tasos Govas.
