This is emphasized by sources of the Ministry of Tourism on the occasion of Ryanair’s announcement to close its base in Athens in the winter season.
This plan, which will be presented in the next period, includes, among other things, the provision of incentives to airlines and tour operators who are interested in continuing their activity in Greece after October.
For this purpose, after all, from the beginning of next week, the Minister of Tourism, Vassilis Kikilias, will make a series of targeted visits to European capitals to expand cooperation with international players in the tourism industry.
As the same sources emphasize, the Ministry of Tourism promotes from the first moment the partnership of the public and private sectors for proposals and initiatives with a purely developmental sign that create new jobs and further upgrade the tourism product of our country. And the results are already visible from the excellent performance of this year’s tourist season.
“Bombshell” from Ryanair: It is closing its base in Athens – Which routes will remain
Ryanair is moving forward with the decision to close its base in Athens in the winter season.
In particular, from October 29 to the end of March, the Irish airline is releasing two of its aircraft from the airport “Eleftherios Venizelos”reducing its itineraries to 10 from 29 which were planned. Oper means that the capacity will be reduced by almost half.
Ryanair will maintain 10 routes from Athens to Dublin, London, Brussels, Milan, Bologna, Rome, Budapest, Katowice, Vienna and Malta, no longer parking any aircraft at Eleftherios Venizelos Airport.
Also, the Irish company, which has a share of the Greek market at around 7% (behind Aegean 38% and Sky Express 15%), will maintain its base in Thessaloniki and will operate routes to the co-capital and from Chania and from to the co-capital.
It was led to this decision, as Ryanair maintains, due to the lack of incentives from the Greek airline and Fraport Greece, which also manages other regional airports, to boost its passenger traffic in the winter season.
In fact, according to information, he blames the government and “Eleftherios Venizelos” for maintaining non-competitive fees.
