Fraport eyes new developments at Makedonia airport
Fraport Greece is considering implementing additional non-obligatory investments at Thessaloniki's Makedonia Airport, including the construction and operation of a hotel. The German-Greek consortium has completed most of the initial 450-million-euro investment program in the 14 regional airports it operates.
During a presentation of the logistics center to be developed at Makedonia Airport, Fraport Greece chief executive Alexander Zinell said that there is also a plot available for development next to the airport.
The possible developments to be assessed for implementation on the plot include accommodation projects, a shopping complex, additional logistics centers and energy hubs. Market sources comment that a hotel development is widely expected (like the Sofitel hotel next to Athens International Airport), as this would provide for additional passenger traffic.
