Ellinikon International Airport

Ellinikon International Airport was the international airport of Athens, Greece for 63 years. It was replaced on March 28, 2001 by the new Athens International Airport, Eleftherios Venizelos. The airport was located 7 kilometres south of Athens, and just west of Glyfada. It was named after the village of Elliniko, now a suburb of Athens. The airport had an official capacity of 11 million passengers per year, but served 13.5 million passengers during it's last year of operations. A large portion of the site was converted into a stadium and sports facilities for the 2004 Olympic Games.

The former airport is now the site of a major development for coastal Athens which came under criticism because well-preserved historic buildings were demolished. The Hellenikon Metropolitan Park is being constructed with work beginning in 2020 and will consist of luxury homes, hotels, a casino, the Inspire Athens tower, a marina, shops, and offices to be built by 2025.

Fees at LGKR

Flew in Sept 13-18 2015. Cessna 210 MGTW 1740 Kg.

IFR from Hungary cancelled (due to VFR weather) on arrival when contacting Greek radar. No IFR fee.

Paid the following fees:

Landing 7.50 Euro

Parking 7.50/day

Handling at Swissport with AOPA card 25 Euro

Avgas 2.90/Lt

Passenger departure Tax 12 Euro/passenger

Not sure about a departure tax but I think there was one.

Everything went smoothly and professionally. Would recommend the airport as well the community for a vacation spot. Just pay attention to local time difference if arriving from up north due to the difference in local time.

Now in all due respect this is noway to treat passenger's on any of yer flights total unrespectable. regards Joan Dowling /phone num 087 6066927.

Aegean-Olympic to reduce prices

In a recent press release following the acquisition of Olympic by Aegean, the company proposes (effective 1/12/2013) to reduce air ticket prices to €39 and to between 0-20€ (depending on the time of year) if your ongoing/incoming journey is on an Olympic/Aegean flight. If this is implemented, it's excellent news for Paros (also Naxos, and the other 10 Greek "public service routes").

Polykastro Airport - Runway info

The runway at Polykastro airfield is 18/36 and is in excellent condition, the length is 1.000 meters long and 23 meters wide, asphalt. The wind usually blowing from the north or south, never x-wind

Was there and is the best airfield in the South East Europe. There are no fees!!

Picture of

Reduce costs, make commercially viable.

Presently flights can only be afforded by rich people. The small Dash planes have difficulty leaving with more than 18 passengers in a 38 seater! Flight prices are more than twice that of Blue Star ferries. Construct a runway 1900 mtrs for tourist planes to land from Europe or forget being a tourist destination. Mykonos and Santorini both succeed in attracting European and other overseas visitors why not Paros? Hotels have lots of empty rooms. Wake up Paros get on with a proper size airport!! Your a large island with lots of accommodation.

I would land there if I were you... It is now a rowing center... :)

Great private airstrip with hotel

It was great visiting this little airport. Mr George who has tower duties and who owns the hotel next to the landing strip is a great character, very helpful with everything. The hotel is very nice and inexpensive. From the site you can visit local attractions like Edessa, Kaimaktsalan mountain for skiing, the picturesque village of Agios Athanassios, the Pozar hot springs, Nymfaio, and further away, the Prespa lakes etc. Highly recommended trip!

re: civil airport!!!!!

Larisa doesn't have 300,000 people; the main city itself has about 100,000 people in it, with the suburbs and surrounding municipalities perhaps adding about 100,000: that's a total of 200,000 people.

Now, if you have a close look at the map, this airport has a few serious problems:

1. Its layout has left no provision for civil (general and commercial) aviation installations (terminals, maintenance hangars etc) at all.

2. The runway is OK, but the exits and entrances were not designed for commercial aircraft; at best, it would suit business jets up to the size of a Bombardier Global 8000, and you can pretty much forget planes like a Boeing 737 or an Airbus A320 (and its family) or bigger. It would need major modifications and upgrades.

3. There's the Nea Anchialos National Airport outside nearby Volos (IATA: VOL, ICAO: LGBL), which already has a terminal.

The (only) Airport in Western Greece during winter

Corfu (Kerkyra) is one of the few Greek airports with normal working hours during the winter (see - some airports are open only on some days, some are open for only an hour in the evening, etc).

The arrival and stay in Corfu was pleasant. I assume that during the high season the airport may be quite busy.

An important advice: have the AOPA membership card or some proof that you are a flying-club member with you. With proof of club membership, the landing fee is symbolic (some 4 EUR) and you get a hefty discount on handling (some 15-20 EUR). It is rumored that Greeks are trying hard to invite GA guests to their nice places and these discounts are part of this campaign. We can only applaud this attitude and wish other countries would do the same.

Altogether the experience was very nice, although the Greek way (everything can be solved, sometimes a bit slow). ARO is the tower: they were very friendly and helpful in planning and arranging the flight through Greek airspace.

For a 100$ hamburger type of stay (in reality it is a 600 EUR Greek dinner), there is quite a decent Hotel Bretagne 5 minutes walk from the airport and another 15 minutes walk from the city centre.

re: Runways?

According to the Wikipedia article they are, in fact, runways.

Picture of ptomblin


Are those runways or helicopter taxiways?
