Greek freak with their Airport fees

Mar 20, 2018

On 1st April 2018, Fraport will be increasing the rates for landing and parking fees at the 14 international airports it manages in Greece: Aktion, Chania, Corfu, Kavala, Kefalonia, Kos, Lesbos, Mykonos, Rhodes, Samos, Santorini, Skiathos, Thessaloniki, and Zakynthos.

Parking charges were free for the first 5 hours and then the charges were 1.08 per ton of MTOW/ per 24 hours. The rates were the same regardless of the aircraft MTOW and size.

Please see the new charges for parking at these airports.

Landing fees For larger aircraft, Fraport set the rate per ton (MTOW), and with the exception of LGKV/Kevala and LGSA/Chania,

There will be a 90 Euros fee for the Fire truck to be called during fueling. It’s something that’s only charged In Greece and nowhere else In the World.

With the new rates set to come into force on 1st April 2018, many operators may prefer to take their business elsewhere. As the President of Corfu CAA Association, Dimitris Roussos, says [the price increase] is exorbitant and almost prohibitive. A lot of people will choose other airports such as Ioannina which have lower charges and where they can refuel and spend 1-2 days instead of coming to expensive Corfu. It is quite probable that we will see the Corfu Air Club move to Ioannina as well as a significant decrease in the number of small private aircraft visiting Corfu in the summer.
