    Talking Point

    The sale of 14 Greek airports has finally been agreed in the latest step of the privatisation programme mandated by the European Union and the IMF following their €240bn ($298bn) bailout.

    No doubt to the chagrin of the Greeks who blame Germany for six years of recession and enforced austerity, the tender was won by Frankfurt-based airport operator Fraport in partnership with Copelouzos.

    The consortium, in which Fraport is the dominant partner, will pay €1.2bn ($1.5bn) for three mainland and 11 island airports that together serve about 19 million passengers per year.

    MRO Network's Juliet Trew reports from MRO Europe in Madrid on the warning to maintenance providers to make sure they are prepared for risks posed by threats such as the ebola outbreak, as well as from the challenges within our sector.
    The Eurozone has had a pretty tough few years following the economic downturn with debt crises, austerity measures and geopolitical unrest, all of which has impacted the commercial aviation sector.
