Athens International Airport
Just days after being hit with negative publicity for redirecting a flight from London destined for Thessaloniki's Makedonia Airport to Timisoara in Romania due to the weather conditions at the Greek airport, Irish low-fare carrier Ryanair announced on Sunday that it will be halting its domestic service linking Athens with Thessaloniki.
Greece's privatization agency will proceed with a tender to sell a 30 percent stake in Athens International Airport (AIA) early next year, its head said on Wednesday.
The TAIPED privatization agency holds a 30 percent stake in the airport, with the government owning another 25 percent.
The rest is held by German-based airport manager AviAlliance and Greek group Copelouzos.
