Santorini Thira Island Airport History

Santorini Airport was inaugurated in 1972 and consists ever since of one terminal building and a single runway. The infrastructure is relatively small sized, allowing the handling of a handful of aircrafts at the same time. The air terminal has a distinctive design, reminding of the traditional Cycladic architecture. Several minor upgrades took place in order to accommodate better further international traffic. The developments have seen a continuous increase in flight movements, serving today approximately 1.2 million passengers each year.

The airport in Santorini is easy accessible for corporate aircraft, while most international commercial flights fly via Athens and Thessaloniki.
