Greece has extended the deadline for bids to build and operate a new airport on Crete to replace the aging Iraklio Airport to October 27, a senior Infrastructure Ministry official said on Thursday.

The government initially set a February deadline for bids for the Kasteli project but it has been pushed backed several times due to delays in preparing documents, with the latest deadline set to expire on Friday.

“The [infrastructure] minister decided today to postpone it by a few days, after a request by four interested parties,” Giorgos Dedes, general secretary for infrastructure, told Reuters.
