Dutch consulting engineer Arcadis will create traffic forecasting and capacity studies for Fraport Greece, which manages and operates 14 regional airports in the country.
Arcadis provided technical advisory services for the company in 2015 and carried out capacity assessments for all 14 airports in 2021.
Arcadis is an approved supplier for the Hellenic Civil Aviation Authority, which oversees the concession agreement and is responsible for aviation regulation in Greece.
Jason Buckland, Arcadis’ head of aviation consulting and mobility, said: “The last 18 months have been extremely challenging for the aviation industry. However, despite the ongoing pressures resulting from the pandemic, the continuation of our work with Fraport Greece provides a degree of encouragement for the future of the aviation sector and sets a clear sign that the industry is committed to looking ahead towards a sustainable recovery.
“At the same time, working across 14 airports brings some unique operational challenges for our team, but with the breadth of our technical and regional expertise we are well placed to solve day-to-day issues and work closely with our client to achieve their long-term goals.”
Fraport Greece is owned by German airport operator Fraport and the Greek business development organisation Copelouzos Group. In 2021, it announced that a €440m upgrade programme for the airports had been completed by Greek contractor Intrakat.
