The list includes Thessaloniki and the popular tourist island gateways of Rhodes, Corfu, Kos, Mykonos, Santorini and Zakynthos.
The project is part of a larger restructuring effort by the government to privatise state companies and infrastructure.

“Our company has thus gained an excellent track record in successfully privatizing airports, often under very challenging economic, political and cultural circumstances.”
