The board of directors of Charleroi Airport met at the end of August in Venice instead of Gossels. Walloon Budget and Finance Minister Jean-Luc Croque (MR) now defends this decision. And the matter appeared in the Walloon Parliament on Monday, “the flight cost the airport only a net amount of about a thousand euros.”
According to the new airport laws, there is no problem: one of the board members is allowed to continue on the floating city, more specifically at the headquarters of Save (which is the private company of Belgian airports, the largest shareholder of Charleroi airport, checks).
However, the unions reacted very angry about the trip to Italy, especially since the airport paperwork is financially difficult. Here and there an analogy has been drawn with the Publifin case.
“less than 250 euros per person”
Minister Jean-Luc Croque defends the airport. According to the figures provided by the airport with full transparency, the cost of travel amounts to 2,200 euros. This is less than 250 euros per person. You still have to deduct travel costs for Italian board members. In total, this involves a net cost of about 1,000 euros, as explained in the Walloon Parliament.
In addition, at the end of August, a proposal was discussed to the shareholders that from now on only one meeting per year would be held in Venice, according to Croque. This meeting then coincides with the annual strategic meeting in Italy. “I think the comparison with the Publifin case is totally unjustified,” he said.
