Stakeholder engagement meetings
In an event held on July 20th 2017 in Rhodes, Fraport Greece presented to the local community, representatives of local authorities, local tourism stakeholders and local media its analytical construction plans for the development of Rhodes airport. In the context of taking over the management and operation of the 14 regional airports on April 11th, Fraport Greece held a round of nationwide stakeholder engagement events during which Fraport Greece presented its plans for all airports.
During the Q&A session the key issues that emerged regarding the Rhodes airport were the following:
• Poor hygiene in the toilets of the airport
• Functional problems with the conveyor belts
• Overall slow baggage delivery services
• Parking spaces issues
• Requirement for traffic management
• Enquiries in the number of created jobs from the airport operation
• Fraport’s strategy for attraction of new carries
• Complaints from HCAA employees for outdated ATC equipment
• Understaffed ATC.
As part of its mandate for taking over management and operations at the 14 airports, Fraport Greece has prepared a comprehensive plan for the modernization and development of the airports. The company’s plan includes immediate projects and development works for upgrading the airports’ facilities, which will contribute significantly to improving the overall customer travel experience, while responding to the expected increase in passenger traffic. Fraport Greece will invest a minimum of 400 million euros for development works until 2021. During the 40-year concession period the company will implement additional maintenance and upgrading works, as well as capacity expansions (dependent on traffic growth) -- resulting in possible total investments of some 1 billion euros.
