Corinth Canal had 200 crossings since reopening

Nearly 200 crossings through the Corinth Canal have been recorded since it reopened on July 4th, 2022, after major landslides over the last few years and the completion of the first section of repair construction.

Corinth Canal SA General Director Georgios Zouglis told the media on Saturday that crossings are expected to reach 6,500 by October, it was added, the aim being for Corinth Canal to become a model center of global navigation, on a par with global sea routes standards. At the same time, moves are being made for the tourism utilization of the broader area, in view of a sustainable development of the local community, it was emphasized.

"We opened with absolute safety, and we are once again providing integrated, upgraded and reliable services to our customers," added Zouglis.
