After closing 2017 with 3 million passengers and 2018 expected to close at 4 million, Grimaldi Group of Italy is now watching at the 5 million as the new annual threshold to reach before the end of 2019.

The new ambitious target was revealed by Emanuele Grimaldi at the Euromed Convention held in Athens, Greece, where he also revealed that today the passenger business accounts just for 10% on the total turnover of € 3 billion.

Talking about the local market he said that Grimaldi Group’s future plans are to offer more services to Greek islands: “New route to Chania, new services to Cyclades Islands, new services to Corfù from Southern, Central and Northern Italy, and more connections also to Greece mainland”.

But Emanuele Grimaldi emphasized also more connection to Greek mainland talking about “increased cargo and passengers capacity from/to Venice and Brindisi and more global connections via Brindisi and via Euromed/deep-sea connections”.
