AIRPORT TOUR

THURSDAY 27 APRIL 2023 – 15.00 – 16.30 – CHANIA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

As part of its mandate for taking over management and operations at the 14 airports, Fraport Greece realised a comprehensive plan for the modernisation and development of the airports. The company’s plan included immediate projects and development works for upgrading the airports’ facilities, which contribute significantly to improving the overall customer travel experience, while responding to the expected increase in passenger traffic. Fraport Greece launched the airport development program in April 2017, in tandem with the start-up of its concession for managing 11 island and three mainland airports across Greece, while the company concluded the last of the construction works for the 14 airports in January 2021.

Fraport Greece’s innovative €440 million airport development programme has significantly transformed these airports, among them Chania International Airport ‘Ioannis Daskalogiannis’ with the following development works: 

  •  Rearranging the terminal’s internal utilisation
  •  Rearranging the departure gate lounge
  •  Expanding the security control area
  •  HBS (Hold Baggage Screening Systems) inline screening
  •  Expanding the wastewater treatment plant or connection to municipal service
  •  Reorganising the apron area
  •  Refurbishing the airside pavement
  •  25 % increase in the number of departure gates (from 8 to 10)
  •  Doubling the number of security-check lanes (from 4 to 8)
