First Hydroplane Airport Set For Corfu

ydroplanoThe first hydroplane airport in the Ionian Sea will be constructed at the Ionian Sea island of Corfu after the relevant legislation concerning the terms and conditions of permit and operation is approved.

All the relevant paperwork has been submitted by the Greek hydroplane airports company Water Airports in order to operate in the Ionian Islands, To Vima said.

According to information from Corfu, the company will use the island as its base to reach others. The islands Othonoi, Erikousa and Paxos that are located in the Ionian Sea will be the first flight destinations, while guided cruise flights for tourists that want to see Corfu from above will be also offered by the company.


  1. Greek Billionare John Catsimatidis struggled for 2 years to do just that “Hydroplane Network” to connect Greek Islands and he returned to the USA with just very bad impression stating that Greece is only “Souvlaki, Tzaziki & Mousaka” and he is right in his claims…Shame on the Greek government not helping investors for helping the country and specialy Greeks from abroad…

  2. That’s funny, some Greek Canadian was tortured to death by Greek idiocy trying to do the same.

    But Mr. Earle’s company, AirSea Lines, went bust five years later in 2008—hindered in large part, he says, by government bureaucracy. “They killed it by inertia,” he says. “Greece is an unsustainable reality.”

    AirSea’s odyssey illustrates one of the key problems preventing Greece from generating the economic growth it needs to pay off its heavy debts: Critics say a sprawling civil service has tried to secure its own survival through an opaque patchwork of fees, taxes and red tape.

  3. @WallyBaiter:disqus The Greek crisis is caused by the government including public service the civil servants and their parasites…Major Greek political parties have contributed to the bankruptcy and the downfall of the country …They looted its wealth and mismanaged its economy…They are incompetent, useless and worthless…They should be in jail not just for the above but also for sending innocent Greeks to their death for no fault of their own…
