Beach Cleaning and The Oscars ...

Congratulations to the beach cleaning teams ...

Airport News:

From Fraport ...

The flights from abroad to Skiathos Airport start on 2 May , which will soon welcome the first British tourists to travel from Manchester with Thomas Cook.

This year's air traffic is expected to fluctuate at last year's levels, with a slight increase from abroad.

In the meantime, two new aviation destinations are added, from Poznan, Poland and Stavanger, Norway. The new direct line from Poznan opens on June 2 and the corresponding one from Norway on May 19th.

The general picture is satisfactory, messages coming from abroad are encouraging and, according to airport manager Stefanos Lambropoulos, Skiathos airport is an important gateway to the Northern Sporades.

According to Mr. Lambropoulos, a series of renovation works are planned by Frapport Greece to improve the overall image of Skiathos Airport.

The old terminal changes its appearance and the new one, respectively, is being refurbished in the sanitary facilities. The aim of the interventions is to make both spaces operational, while according to the plan, the old terminal will serve the public domestic arrivals during the winter, from October until May, while the airport fire station will be fully renovated.

The aim of Frapport Greece is to make Skiathos airport functional for all and at the same time to attract tourists from Greece and abroad.

    And the beach cleaning efforts are such a fantastic thing they deserve much more publicity and thanks.
