Welcome to Athens! You have just arrived at one of the fastest-growing airports in the world. Since its opening in 2001, the multi-awarded Athens International Airport “Eleftherios Venizelos” has continuously enriched its network with new carriers and destinations and is now officially ranked among the leading 25 airports in Europe.
The airport today
Today, Athens airport is connected to 172 domestic and international destinations, including all major cities around the world at competitive prices. It’s also your gateway to the Greek islands (from world-famous Santorini to off-radar gems like Skyros and Astypalea).
Since its modern makeover in 2017, Athens airport is not only easy on the eye; it’s super easy to navigate too. The streamlined layout means you spend less time on tasks like check-in and security and have more time for the things you actually enjoy. Like shopping, dining and unwinding.
