Emirates’ first flight to US via Greece lands in Newark
http://www.thenational.ae/business/a...ands-in-newark
Quote:
Describing the new service as "a spectacular development for the Athens’ market", Yiannis Paraschis, the chief executive of Athens International Airport, said Athens’ strong traffic volumes to and from the US, supported by the Greek-American community of about 1.3 million people, showed the potential of the carrier’s latest endeavour.

Greece has experienced a double-digit increase in arrivals from the United States in the past two years, according to the consul general of Greece in New York, Konstantinos Koutras . "The establishment of the new direct flight Dubai-Athens-New York will significantly empower Greece’s appeal among the U.S. travel audience."

Emirates will serve the route with a wide-body Boeing 777-300ER powered by General Electric GE90 engines, offering eight seats in First Class, 42 seats in Business and 304 seats in Economy, as well as 19 tonnes of belly-hold cargo capacity.

Emirates daily flight EK209 will depart Dubai at 10:50am local time, arriving in Athens at 2:25pm before departing again at 4:40pm and arriving into Newark at 10pm on the same day. Emirates daily flight EK210 will depart Newark at 11:45pm, arriving in Athens the next day at 3:05pm. It will depart from Athens at 5:10pm arriving in Dubai 11:50pm.

Passengers wishing to travel beyond Athens can connect to or from destinations within Greece, such as Corfu, Mykonos or Santorini, with Aegean and OlympicAir. Internationally, passengers can also connect to or from Cairo, Tirana, Belgrade, Bucharest and Sofia.

Quote:
As part of its mandate for taking over management and operations at the 14 airports, Fraport Greece has prepared a comprehensive plan for the modernization and development of the airports. The company’s plan includes immediate projects and development works for upgrading the airports’ facilities, which will contribute significantly to improving the overall customer travel experience, while responding to the expected increase in passenger traffic.
Quote:
Immediate actions that will be implemented at the airports as soon as Fraport Greece takes over operations before the launch of the summer season include:
- General clean-up
- Improving lighting, marking of airside areas
- Upgrading sanitary facilities
- Enhancing services and offering new free Internet connection (WiFi)
- Implementing works to improve fire safety in all the areas of the airports

The above projects are expected to improve the travel experience for passengers at the airports, until the major works are completed in 2021.

Fraport Greece’s major development works to be implemented during the first four years of the concession period include building five new passenger terminals – at the airports in Thessaloniki, Kerkira (Corfu), Kefalonia, Kos, and Mytilene (Lesvos) – and modifications at other airports.

Crete’s Kastelli Airport Project Moves to Next Stage

Posted On 18 Apr 2017

An infrastructure consortium made up of GMR Airports Limited (GAL) and Greece’s GEK Terna has placed its bid at 480 million euros for the construction and operation of the new Kastelli airport project in Heraklion, Crete, and is expected to receive parliament approval by year-end.

Athens’ International Airport first major facelift completed


http://www.ypodomes.com/index.php/sp...lift-completed
Quote:
The biggest facelift in the 16 years of AIA’s operation was completed just a few days ago. Costing 35mn euros, interior refurbishments both in Intra Schengen and Extra Schengen zones transformed the airport terminal for the better.

A new philosophy was introduced with regard to its interior design, with larger spaces, futuristic lighting and revamped passengers’ lobbies in a dominating, white colour, inspiring harmony combined with a touch of elegant contemporary elements.

All retail stores were also refurbished. It is noteworthy that 15 out of 35mn euros spent on the facelift came from the Airport whereas the remaining 20mn from the commercial concessionaires. JP AVAX was the contractor of the project.

Mr. Giannis Eleftherakis, Development CEO of the Airport, emphasized that these changes will bring a major improvement of the passenger’s experience in the Airport; “The passenger will now be able to reach the airplane, without having to talk to anybody in the meantime”, he added regarding the automatization of several procedures.

Mr. Costas Theodorogiannopoulos, Technical Services Manager, noted that the main target was the upgrade of the Airport’s facilities and infrastructure, the reinforcement of the commercial activities and the enhancement of the passenger’s experience. “9 check points were reduced to just 2, without compromising security, while the retail space is now unified with catering stores making the visitor’s shopping even more pleasant. Regarding the automatic entrance check points, the Airport is now equipped with 9 of them, accelerating the flow of passengers considerably”.

New terminal for Athens airport
http://www.ekathimerini.com/220060/a...athens-airport
Quote:
Athens International Airport (AIA) intends to tackle a spike in incoming traffic with the operation of a third terminal station by the end of this year. This is the terminal that until now operated only to cover the peak days of the summer season.

Kathimerini understands that AIA intends to start operating the satellite terminal on a permanent basis, and to this end the necessary preparations have already been made with the creation of waiting rooms, shops, etc.

The aim of this move is to meet new demand levels, as AIA will then be able to handle passenger volume coming to 26 million people a year.
Scoot marks start of long-haul operations with maiden flight to Athens
http://www.tornosnews.gr/en/transpor...to-athens.html
Quote:
Singapore - Scoot today marked yet another milestone with its inaugural flight to the historical city of Athens, Greece, this morning. Apart from being the sole carrier flying nonstop between Singapore and Athens, the flight is also the airline’s first to a European destination and maiden long-haul flight.

Operated on Scoot’s newest Boeing 787 Dreamliner, the 11.5-hour flight takes off from Singapore every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. The aircraft has been named to commemorate the new milestone; with the name Mous-Scoot-Ka being inspired by Moussaka, an iconic Greek baked dish. Passengers in the inaugural flight were also treated to a “Scootitude” journey filled with in-flight games and prizes.

“Scoot is currently the only airline and low-cost carrier offering direct flight between Southeast Asia and Greece via a direct flight between Singapore and Athens,” said Mr Lee Lik Hsin, CEO, Scoot. “With our debut into long-haul operations, Scoot is planning to launch five more new destinations in the next year, including one long-haul destination and four new short to mid-haul routes.This will open up new travel options for Asian travellers as well as European ones now with the start of our Singapore – Athens service.”

Mous-Scoot-Ka landed at the Athens International Airport (AIA) at about 8.45am Greece time (1.45pm Singapore time). Scoot’s 787 Dreamliner received an enthusiastic reception with water cannon salute at AIA and a Greek Moussaka Party, much to the delight of Scoot’s passengers.
