Arcadis has been appointed to deliver traffic forecasting and capacity studies for Fraport Greece, which manages and operates 14 Greek regional airports.
Fraport is one of the world’s largest airport investors and operators, with assets in several European countries, the Americas and Asia. As a subsidiary, Fraport Greece is responsible for maintaining, operating, managing, upgrading and developing 14 regional airports across the Greek islands and mainland over 40 years.
Arcadis has a long-standing relationship with Fraport Greece, having first been appointed when the company was created in 2015 to provide a range of technical advisory services, including traffic forecasting, development master planning, expert witness services and operational costing.
In the last year alone, Arcadis has provided updated capacity assessments for all 14 airports in the Fraport Greece portfolio and has recently embarked on new traffic forecasts aiming to support Fraport Greece with its latest development masterplans.
As a trusted advisor to Fraport Greece, Arcadis is also an approved supplier for the Hellenic Civil Aviation Authority, which oversees the concession agreement and is responsible for aviation regulation in Greece.
Jason Buckland, head of aviation consulting and mobility at Arcadis, 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 different 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.”
