Athens airport - Attica (Greece)

Athens International Airport. The Athens International Airport bears the name of one of Greece's greatest statesman, "Eleftherios Venizelos". The airport took the place of two older airports (Hellenikon). Work started in 1996 and was completed within the scheduled time, so that the airport could open its doors in March 2001. The distance from Spata, where the airport is situated, to the city center is about 29 km. At this airport, the Greek airlines “Aegean Airlines” and “Olympic Air” have a base and also Ryanair.
