Aktion National Airport (IATA: PVK, ICAO: LGPZ) is an airport serving Preveza and Lefkada in Greece. It is also known as Preveza Airport. It is also used by NATO and Hellenic Air Force Command. The airport commenced operations in 1968.[4]

History[edit]

In December 2015, the privatisation of Aktion National Airport and 13 other regional airports of Greece was finalised with the signing of the agreement between the Fraport AG/Copelouzos Group joint venture and the state privatisation fund.[6] "We signed the deal today", the head of Greece's privatisation agency HRADF, Stergios Pitsiorlas, told Reuters.[7] According to the agreement, the joint venture will operate the 14 airports (including Aktion National Airport) for 40 years as of autumn 2016.[citation needed]

Fraport Greece’s investment plan[edit]

On 22 March 2017, Fraport-Greece presented its master plan for the 14 Greek regional airports, including the International Airport of Chania.[8]

Immediate actions that will be implemented at the airports, as soon as Fraport Greece takes over operations, before the launch of the 2017 summer season include:

  • General clean-up
  • Improving lighting, marking of airside areas
  • Upgrading sanitary facilities
  • Enhancing services and offering a new free Internet connection (WiFi)
  • Implementing works to improve fire safety in all the areas of the airports

The following summarizes the enhancement changes that will start in October 2017 and will be implemented for Aktion National Airport under Fraport-Greece's investment plan by 2021:

  • Terminal expansion by 2,381 m2 and refurbishment
  • HBS inline screening
  • Reorganizing airport apron area
  • Refurbishing airside pavement
  • 75 percent increase in the number of check-in counters (from 8 to 14)
  • 60 percent increase in the number of departure gates (from 5 to 8)
  • Doubling the number of security-check lanes (from 2 to 4)
