Fraport is confident it can sign contracts for an airports concession in Greece in the next three to six months, its chief executive said on Wednesday.

“We are in very intensive talks with Greece,” Stefan Schulte stated.

Greek Economy Minister Giorgos Stathakis said in August that the 1.2-billion-euro deal may be wrapped up in March.

Greece named Fraport and its Greek partner, energy firm Copelouzos, as the preferred bidder to operate 14 airports in tourist destinations, including Corfu and Santorini, at the end of last year.
