The president of state privatization fund TAIPED, Stergios Pitsiorlas, sent a letter to the chief of the Athens International Airport board, Panayiotis Roumeliotis, expressing his concerns over the latter’s handling of the process for the further privatization of the country’s main air hub.

Pitsiorlas also urged Roumeliotis to proceed with all the necessary actions for the immediate start of negotiations between AIA and TAIPED that will see a stake of the airport’s company passed on to the fund for sale.

Roumeliotis is thought to be stalling the process by avoiding including the issue on the agenda of AIA board meetings.
