Tickets for children aged 2 to 5 will have the levy applied to their tickets for the first time. Fraport Greece will be seeing the delivery of its 14 regional airports in the country and will be put in control of the airports for the next 40 years, according to the privatization agreement. Next month when they take over, there will be a new single Airport Modernization and Development Levy which will apply to all tickets, the Greek newspaper Kathimerini reported.
