GREECE-ECONOMY-AIRPORT-PRIVATISATIONS

People walk past the state Heracleion airport 'Nikos Kazantzakis' in the city of Heracleion on the island of Crete, on February 21, 2015. Greece intends to review a 1.2 billion euro ($1.36 billion) deal with German airport operator Fraport to run 14 Greek airports, with a government minister saying the contract would be put on ice. The airports, put up for lease in 2014 to boost Athens' depleted cash reserves, include Thessaloniki, the second largest city in the country, and those of tourist hotspots. The new radical left government, which swept to power at the end of January and is currently embroiled in negotiations over its bailout obligations, had promised voters it would halt the privatisations.
