More information about Athens Airport
The construction of Athens International Airport - Eleftherios Venizelos was the biggest infrastructural project based on private funding ever in modern Greek history. On the
31.07.1995, the Greek government and a private consortium led by HOCHTIEF (plc) concluded the Airport Development Agreement (ADA) with the common goal of developing a new airport in Spata. Athens International Airport S.A. (Diethnis Aerolimenas Athinon A.E.) will be legally run as a private corporation for the duration of 30 years including the construction period in the form of a public private partnership (PPP). The Greek state owns 55% and the other private partners the remaining 45%.
