For­eign air­lines avoid Athens

Kathimerini English - - Business & Finance -

Re­gional air­ports, such as the Ioan­nis Kapodis­trias on Corfu, are at­tract­ing more and more for­eign air­lines as a re­sult of their ex­emp­tion from air­port charges for the sum­mer sea­son, which this year has been stretched to the end of 2011. Charges per flight at re­gional air­ports av­er­age 163 eu­ros, while an air­line must pay 945 eu­ros per flight at Athens In­ter­na­tional Air­port. Low-fare air­lines are start­ing to take Athens off their sched­ules, opt­ing for smaller air­ports around the coun­try.
