Air transport is a key enabler of economic activity in Greece.
It supports 457,000 jobs and EUR 17.8 billion of gross value to GDP, which accounts for 10.2% of Greek GDP.
Main Industry Priorities
- The long term viability of the air traffic management system needs to be guaranteed through structured capital investments, including recruiting more air traffic controllers
- Passenger charges and taxes make flying to and from Greece more expensive. A better charges process with a stronger regulator and transparent, meaningful consultation is necessary
- Greek connectivity has improved due to more airport capacity. Working with stakeholders to allow further growth will benefit the country
- Ensure that airport charges are cost based and cost effective for airlines and passengers.
- Ensure airspace and the associated infrastructure is modernized through a structured plan of capital investments, to guarantee the long-term viability of the entire Air Traffic Management (ATM) system.
- Address the capacity utilization of terminals and runway in order to accomodate the future growth of passengers.
