As ypodomes .com had reported, the project to develop new and improve existing infrastructure of the new Paros airport had gone out to tender, as you had. The airport on the Cycladic island has had an impressive track record (until the pandemic) and although there had been an upgrade contractor and some building work, it was deemed necessary to further upgrade it to meet its ever-increasing needs.
