Peloni: Fourteen Greek Airports Will Be “National Bridges” for a Better Summer

ATHENS — Government spokesperson Aristotelia Peloni, opening her regular briefing to the press on Thursday, stated that 14 airports will act as "national bridges for a better summer," referring to the upgrading of Fraport's regional airports. "Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Wednesday attended an event held at Makedonia airport for the completion of the upgrading of 14 regional airports managed by Fraport Greece," she said, adding that this would be an investment of 440 million euros that will change the situation for 11 islands and three mainland areas.

Regarding the easing of personal and collective protection measures against COVID-19, she said that the opening of open-air cinemas on Friday will be "another step towards regaining the freedom that we were deprived of by the pandemic". At the same time, she clarified, "freedom, as the prime minister pointed out, does not mean having no limits. It is necessary for people to understand this because, as inspections show, there is a relaxation in terms of using masks, keeping safe distances and in how cafes and restaurants operate".


ATHENS - Marking the two-year anniversary of Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine, Greece reiterated its support for the fight, the Foreign Ministry declaring Greece remains “determined to continue to support Ukraine” in its just fight for its independence, two years after Russia’s invasion.
