The Greek government will be an ordinary creditor and will only receive money if there is money left in the bankrupt estate.

That is only with regard to the assets of teh company. The airline is still liable to repay the illegal loan.

Olympic Airlines workers walk onto Athens International Airport runway to protest airline sale
23 September 2008

ATHENS, Greece (AP) - Hundreds of protesting Olympic Airlines workers walked onto the main runway of Athens International Airport Tuesday to protest plans to sell the troubled state-owned airline.

The employees, including pilots, air stewards, technicians and support staff, stopped planes from taking off or landing there, but the airport said flights were not being disrupted as planes were being diverted to a second runway.

"There is no impact on the flights, all are using the western runway," airport spokeswoman Marina Papageorgiou said.

The government says OA has accumulated total losses of around euro2.7 billion ($3.85 billion). The European Union last week approved a government plan to privatize the Greek carrier next year.

Olympic's 8,100 staff are not guaranteed jobs when the airline is sold, but about 4,600 salaried employees will be offered public sector jobs as part of a compensation package worth euro1.2 billion ($1.74 billion).

Employees' unions have said they have no plans to strike but will carry out frequent protests.

Tuesday's demonstration at the airport is the second such action in a week. Last Thursday, employees blocked a taxiway near the main runway but did not disrupt flights.

The sale of the assets will most likely not cover the E850 Million repayment of illegal finacial assistance. So the Government's credit to the new airline will be additional to the estimated E2.6 Billion in debt the new business will inherit. This is a rather large figure for an airline that will still be dependent on state subsidies to operate some of it's 'social' routes, and so it may prove unattractive to investors.

New Crete airport to open in 2014

Quote:
A new airport in Kastelli, on the large island of Crete, is scheduled to open in 2014, Environment, Town Planning and Public Works Minister George Souflias said during a meeting with local administration officials in Irakleio, Crete on Tuesday.


Tenders will be considered in May and a contractor will undertake the 1.2 billions-euro project by the end of the year. Construction of a new road linking the airport with the north and south road axes on Crete will be included in related infrastructure projects.


The airport, auxiliary facilities and infrastructure will cover an area of 600 hectares, including a 3.8-km-long runway to accommodate large aircraft and meet the island's needs in air transportation.
Roughly 1,000 jobs are expected to be created during the construction phase, while 2,500 people will be employed as airport staff.
Thirty major projects with a total budget of 500 million euros are currently under scheduled for Crete.

"Andravida" airport

Quote:
Eίκοσι εκατ. ευρώ για το αεροδρόμιο Ανδραβίδας

ΣYNTOMA αναμένεται η δημοπράτηση του έργου μετατροπής του αεροδρομίου της Ανδραβίδας σε πολιτικό, ύψους περίπου 20 εκατ. ευρώ, καθώς μετά από πολλές καθυστερήσεις, τα τεύχη δημοπράτησης του έργου κατατέθηκαν στη διαχειριστική αρχή του προγράμματος του Yπουργείου Μεταφορών.

Το έργο, το οποίο θα χρηματοδοτηθεί από το ΕΣΠΑ, αφορά τη δημιουργία νέου κτιρίου αεροσταθμού, 5.000 τ.μ., και όλων των απαραίτητων υποδομών.

«Το αεροδρόμιο είναι πλέον πράξη και όλη αυτή η προσπάθεια ολοκληρώνεται μέσα σε δύο χρόνια», δήλωσε ο βουλευτής Ηλείας Παναγιώτης Αδρακτάς, με αφορμή τη συγκεκριμένη εξέλιξη, επισημαίνοντας ότι πρώτη φορά ένα τόσο μεγάλο έργο ολοκληρώνεται, μελετάται και ωριμάζει μέσα σε τόσο σύντομο χρονικό διάστημα. Εξήγησε παράλληλα ότι ένας από τους βασικούς λόγους των καθυστερήσεων που παρατηρήθηκαν ήταν η προσφυγή στο ΣτΕ ιδιοκτητών των 250 στρεμμάτων που είχαν απαλλοτριωθεί για τη δημιουργία των εγκαταστάσεων.

Να σημειωθεί ότι ο κ. Αδρακτάς, κατά τη διάρκεια των δηλώσεών του, αναφέρθηκε και στα μεγάλα έργα που δρομολογούνται πλέον στην Ηλεία, όπως είναι το διυλιστήριο του Ερύμανθου, που μετά το Πάσχα αρχίζει η υλοποίησή του, η Ολυμπία Oδός κ.ά.

According to a guy from www.airliners.gr the plans for the satellite terminal are moving ahead. The plans includes increasing capacity and new commercial spaces.
At the moment there is a general trend for the study project which will be completed by mid 2009.
2010 will start the construction of a multi parking.
The project will oversee the architectural firm of Theophanis Bobotis.

P = Parking

Press Releases

23/9/2009

15th World Route Development Forum: Airlines honour AIA with first place in Europe - The only European airport with increased number of frequencies in 2009


Athens International Airport (AIA) is once again the winner of the Routes Airport Marketing Awards* in the Europe category. AIA was awarded in the framework of World ROUTES 2009, the biggest gathering of airports and airlines, held in Beijing, from September 12-15. This time airlines from across the globe distinguished AIA for supporting their route development consistently and dynamically, through the airport’s wide-scale innovative marketing programmes**.

During tough economic times, this new distinction has a special significance for Athens International Airport: In 2009, AIA was the only European airport with increased number of frequencies, with its airline marketing programmes having so far brought 12 new airlines to Athens in 2009 (Air Arabia, Baboo, Cimber Sterling, Libyan. Lvov, Transavia, Atlant-Souyz Airlines, Athens Airways, Etihad, Pegasus, Hellenic Imperial and Sun Express) and 8 new international destinations (Nice, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Tripoli, Benghazi, Casablanca, Izmir, Krasnodar).

Within the framework of the 2009 awards, Amsterdam and Brussels airports were highly commended in the Europe category.


* supported by OAG
** By participating in the airlines’ initial business risk in developing a new route through its incentives and marketing programme, Athens International Airport consistently supports airlines for route development and increases the airport’s competitiveness. Additionally, Athens International Airport implements a co-promotion and advertising programme, following pioneer strategies for the development of new routes, contributing to the promotion of airlines in the Greek market.

Olympic Air

" For travellers all around the world, the word "Olympic" brings to mind many memories and dreams. But for all Greeks, it will always bring to mind the first Greek airline. The first airline that opened the world's skies to all Greeks, becoming synonymous with safety and serving as a point of reference and pride for generations and generations - bringing her historic logo of six linked rings to all corners of the world.


On October 1st, the new Olympic enters a new era, spreading its wings and embarking on new voyages. It has been renamed Olympic Air and in the hands of Marfin Investment Group (MIG), the largest business group in Southeastern Europe, active in the fields of transport, tourism, food, healthcare and IT, with more than 56,000 employees and a client base that exceeds 20 million people in 40 countries, it is ready to once again fly high in the world's skies.


The new Olympic Air will be more modern than ever and have a new vision, a new vigor, a new concept - with brand new cutting-edge aircraft, with innovative and pioneering services, with traditional Greek hospitality, and a renewed passion to offer even more.


In addition to this new momentum, leading technology, innovation, and pioneering, the new Olympic Air will boast one of the youngest fleets of aircraft in Europe, consisting of Airbus A319/A320s and Bombardier Dash 8s. Overall, our investment in the fleet is expected to exceed $1.1 billion.
MIG, as the largest business group in Southeastern Europe, has and will continue to offer its full support to Olympic Air in order to achieve Olympic Air's objectives. MIG's international networks and know-how will support Olympic Air's endeavors globally.


The network of Olympic Air will serve 10 international destinations and 20 domestic, with the intention to serve another 14 domestic locations under the Public Service Obligations (PSO) scheme. Aiming to better serve the travelling public, Olympic is creating business partnerships and code-share agreements with other carriers such as Delta Airlines (*), to serve certain additional international destinations.

(*) The collaboration with Delta Airlines is subject to final approval of the USA Department of Transportation and the Greek Civil Aviation Authority "
