Greece announced on Thursday a 115 million euros relief package to support the country’s air transport sector, which suffered a blow due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Measures Greek tourism
Personal income of pilots, cabin crews and technical staff will be taxed 15% on a permanent basis. The measure will lead to annual savings of 7.7 million euros for the air carriers, Finance, Labour and Transport Ministries said in a joint statement.
Finally, the state will pay airlines an additional 20 euros plus VAT for every seat to routes that are partly subsidized by the state for April and May. Airlines will benefit some 6 million euros from the measure, the Ministries said. ■
