For the third consecutive year, the annual conference focusing on compliance with the regulatory requirements set forth by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) was convened.

The subject of the conference was the review of Fraport Greece‘s progress in achieving regulatory compliance in the areas of organization, operations and infrastructure of airports, under the guidance of the Hellenic Civil Aviation Authority (HCAA). At the same time, a clear reference was made to the operational challenges and the criticality of auditing regulatory compliance issues, according to EASA, especially in a period during which infrastructure upgrade projects included in the National Recovery and Resilience Plan are implemented at the airports managed by Fraport Greece.
