Greece has an extensive domestic network of 78 airports, 39 of which are international. The country’s most significant airports are located in Athens, Alexandroupolis, Kastoria and Thessaloniki in northern Greece, Heraklion on the island of Crete, and Rhodes.
Athens International Airport “Eleftherios Venizelos” (IAI), which opened on March 1, 2001, is designed with an initial capacity of 16 million passengers per year and twin runways allowing simultaneous departure and arrivals. Providing a quality of services that beyond those at “average airports”, AIA is an important hubcap in the region, providing a full range of bank and postal services, as well as shops, restaurants, fully equipped booths with PCs, internet access and a complete package of supporting services for conferences and training seminars at specially arranged state of the art Conference Rooms.
With congress tourism being a significant focus point in the sector, care has been taken for the easy and comfortable transportation of delegates to the location of their business meeting. Almost all of the convention centres or hotels with meeting facilities, either on the mainland or the islands, are located within close proximity to an airport.
