    General:

    The airline industry in Greece has undergone a significant expansion in recent years, which is attributable to the establishment of many private airlines that fly both nationally and internationally. Avramopoulos & Partners is a law firm with an active involvement in aviation law. Our experience ranges from tax and finance-related issues to disputes between airlines and their customers. We have represented sellers, purchasers, lessors, lessees, and investors of aircraft, providing assistance on various aspects of international transactions. Such transactions have involved Greek entities or have generated legal effects in Greece and have valuable experience related to the Greek aviation regulatory framework.

    While knowledgeable in providing advice on civil, tax and security related issues together with the structure of lease finance schemes and in connection to the granting of financing on aircrafts registered in Greece, we also possess extensive experience in aviation-related litigation.

    Furthermore, Avramopoulos & Partners can provide assistance in maneuvering through the procedural hurdles involved in obtaining operational licenses for Greek routes operated by foreign airlines. We can advise on:

    • Labor agreements of air and ground employees of foreign airlines
    • The liability issues incidental to luggage or cargo loss
    • Helicopter landing operational licensing issues
    • Private airlines' operator staff qualifications
       
    All this is a brief overview of aviation law matters handled by our firm in the past.
