Sfakian request for the management of Chania Airport honoured - 8 September, 2018


About 3 months ago, the Sfakians of the Chania prefecture of the same name sent a letter to the administration of Fraport requesting the re-installation of a billboard in the form of I. Daskalogiannis as the honourable person of the airport, who served it with his name.

Today, after a decisive meeting between members of the Association and the management of Chania Airport, the request of the Sfakians is satisfied.


More specifically, on Friday, 7 September, at the request of the Sfakian Association of Chania Prefecture, a meeting was held with the headquarters of the FRAPORT airport of Chania "Ioannis Vlachos Daskalogiannis". On behalf of FRAPORT attended the director Mr. Tasos Tiniakos and Mr. Dim. Hedaktakis and by the Sfakian Association of Chania, President Eftychios Kopasakis and the members of the Board of Directors Nikos Aitakis and Sifis Manouselis.

At this meeting a fixed request was made by the Sfakian club, which, as noted by the members of the association, is a request of all Sfakians and Chaniots and concerns the repositioning of the portrait of the great revolutionary, and a hero, the Sfakian Ioannis Vlachos or Daskalogiannis.

Since the meeting a major reconciliation step has emerged. A spirit of understanding and co-operation has been established by both parties and the photograph of Ioannis Vlachos or Daskalogianni returns to the airport in the departure hall.

The definitive position of the photograph, together with all the information on the life of Daskalogiannis, will be determined jointly between Fraport and the college after the end of the work at the airport end of 2018.

In a second year, the club will provide all the information about Daskalogiannis so as to print a brochure that will be distributed free of charge to students who will visit the airport with their schools as part of their educational excursions.

"The Sfakian Association of Chania is always ready to preserve our historical memory and inheritance", concludes the Association's announcement.
