Fraport Greece, the company managing 14 regional airports in Greece, marked a five-year milestone this week with its 440-million-euro investment program moving full-speed ahead for upgrade works across its network of operations.
The company took over in 2017 and delivered the modernized airports three months ahead of the contractual obligation, Fraport said in its statement, adding that “this required vision, determination and a high level of cooperation with all stakeholders”.
Fraport goes on to underline the importance of the projects for Greece’s tourism sector. The company said it was committed to further developing Greece’s tourism product, enhancing the travel experience for both Greek and international passengers, as well as serving the local communities where it operates.
“We are very happy and proud for these past five years of dynamic presence in Greece. During this time, we have successfully implemented an emblematic investment project. By redeveloping the 14 regional airports, we have also demonstrated exactly what the public and private sectors can achieve when working effectively together,” said Fraport Greece CEO Alexander Zinell.
He added that Fraport Greece would continue to play a leading role in upgrading the travel experience for visitors, while effectively supporting local communities, and always being guided by sustainable development.
“The achievements of the past five years have been nothing short of remarkable. In the middle of the pandemic and ahead of the contractual deadline, Fraport Greece last year completed the huge redevelopment program for all of the airports. These newly transformed gateways put Greece in a very strong competitive position, which was already proven by Fraport Greece’s successful traffic rebound that began with the restart of European travel last summer,” said Fraport AG CEO Stefan Schulte.
