  • [01] PM Tsipras and Austrian Chancellor Faymann visit Lesvos

    Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and the Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann will visit Lesvos island on Tuesday.

    More specifically, they will visit the reception and identification centre and they will discuss on further collaboration between the two countries on the refugees issue.

    Austria has already announced that it will send around 100 employees to assist the Greek authorities.

    [02] Heating oil price is seen lower this year

    The heating oil price will be around 85 cents per litre at the beginning of the winter season, on October 15, provided that the special consumption tax remains stable at last year's levels (23 cents per litre), according to petrol station owners.

    Therefore, the price of heating oil is expected to be significantly lower than last year (1.0-1.1 euros per litre). The drop is due to the decline in global oil prices.

    However, the issue of the heating oil allowance for low incomers remains open, as the agreement with the creditors provides for a 50 percent reduction in the relative funds.

    [03] Passenger traffic at Athens International Airport up 14.7 pct in September‏

    ANA/MPA---Passenger traffic at the Athens International Airport grew 14.7 pct in September to 1.8 million, from 1.6 million passengers in the same month last year.

Foreign passengers grew 25 pct in September, while Greek travelers fell 5.0 pct.

    In the January-September period, passenger traffic totaled 14.1 million, up 21 pct from the same period last year, of which domestic traffic grew 24.6 pct to around 5.0 million passengers and international traffic rose 19.2 pct to around 9.1 million passengers.
