Talks start on Athens International Airport contract


After a delay of more than three months and a strong reaction from some cabinet members, contacts regarding the extension of Athens International Airport’s concession contract between officials from AIA and state sell-off fund TAIPED finally began this week.

The first meetings will remain focused on drawing up the agenda of the issues to be discussed and setting a timetable for an agreement to be reached, senior AIA sources said.

This agreement will also be monitored by the country’s creditors as it is a bailout obligation which has been pending since 2015.
