Specific Terms & Conditions
Period: November 1st 2022 to March 31st 2023
Aiming at mitigating, at the extent possible, airlines’ risk during the restart phase, a 50% discount on Landing & Parking charges is introduced. This discount will be valid for the number of flights operated above the threshold of 60% and up to a maximum of 80% in relation to the monthly number of flights achieved by each airline during the respective months of Summer 2019.
Calculation of discount is based on the actual invoiced amount for Landing & Parking charges, divided by the total operated number of flights per airline per month. Average Landing & Parking charge is then used to apply the discount for the eligible number of flights.
The “Restart” Incentive’s Scheme is be offered on a monthly basis and will be conditional to the airline’s prompt fulfilment of their financial obligations to Athens International Airport.
Wishing us all a productive and successful Winter Season 2022-2023
