Coastal shipping tickets will be at least 10 percent cheaper this summer, following the "gentlemen's agreement" reached on Tuesday between Maritime Affairs, Islands and Fisheries Minister Yiannis Diamantidis and the representatives of coastal shipping companies. Diamantidis held consecutive meetings with representatives of the Federation of Passenger Shipping Firms and the Union of Shipping Enterprises and agreed with them that whatever decrease takes place in withholdings for third parties, that burden the shipping ticket, will pass automatically onto the final price of the ticket and will be in the citizens' favour.
