Fraport Greece, a subsidiary of German airport operator Fraport, has presented its €10m (US$12m) plans for the development of Kavala International Airport in Nestos, during an open event attended by stakeholders and the local community.
Alexander Zinell, CEO of Fraport Greece, said, “It is a great pleasure being here today in the beautiful city of Kavala – an important crossroad of civilizations and gateway to some of Greece’s most important archaeological and holiday destinations. I am delighted to announce that the development and upgrade works at Kavala Airport are about to start. Within just one year, Fraport Greece will completely overhaul the existing airport and significantly improve the passenger experience.”
The plans unveiled by Fraport Greece include expanding the terminal by 2,000m2 (21,500ft2), remodeling of the existing terminal, the installation of a state-of-the-art baggage handling system, and a remodeled and expanded fire station.
