The Redevelopment of 14 Greek Regional Airports, including Corfu Airport

From Pappas Post - Designs Revealed for Redevelopment of 14 Greek Regional Airports

"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

Corfu Airport New Design Plans (from Pappas Post):

Kerkira Airport – Corfu (CFU)

• New terminal
• Expanding terminal by 10,294 m2 and remodeling current terminal
• HBS (Hold Baggage Screening Systems) inline screening
• Refurbishing and upgrading the fire station
• Reorganizing airport apron area
• Refurbishing airside pavement
• 27 percent increase in the number of Check-in Stations (from 22 to 28)
• 33 percent increase in the number of departure gates (from 9 to 12)
• 33 percent increase in the number of security-check lanes (from 6 to 8)"

Signs of a new era, eKathimerini

"The privatization of Greece’s regional airports is an extremely positive development for the country. Just looking at the terrible state of the airports at major international tourism destinations such as Santorini and Corfu is enough proof of Greece’s need to enter a new, modern phase".
Fraport is in for a hard landing at 14 airports, eKathimerini

"The main cause for concern is reportedly the behaviour of a number of employees, who are said to be refusing to familiarize incoming Fraport staff with the infrastructure and the engineering and electronic facilities. This is increasing the risk that certain problems may arise in areas such as the supply of power and light, in passenger service systems and so on, aviation sources warn".
