Tender for Athens Airport stake set for early 2019

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.

More fire victims being found at sea, in remote locations

A fifth person has been found dead in the sea off the coast of Artemida, about 6 nautical miles south of Rafina. He is described as a man aged in his mid-60s and is believed to have drowned while trying to flee the deadly fire that swept across Attica's eastern coast.

A Hellenic Navy frigate recovered the bodies of three women and a child in the same area earlier on Tuesday.
