LCCs avoiding Athens, heading for regional airports

Greece’s regional airports are understood to be enjoying an influx of European LCC traffic (Kathimerini/Balkan Business News Correspondent, 03-May-2011). The Greek government has removed all airport charges from regional Greek airports for the rest of 2011 in a bid to improve tourism, a major export sector. Athens has reported a decline in LCC traffic for the peak summer period.
