ATHENS INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT HISTORY

The airport first operated in 2001

The airport was constructed to replace the now-closed Athens (Ellinikon) International Airport, as the latter had reached its saturation point with no physical space for further growth. Studies for a new airport had been carried out from as early as the 1970s, with as many as 19 different locations being looked at before an area close to the town of Spata was chosen as suitable. Athens Airport SA, a state-owned company, was established in 1978 to proceed with the plans. However, after delays and slow development, the project was revived in 1991 with the then government launching an international tender for the selection of a build-own-operate-transfer partner for the airport project, with Hochtief of Germany being selected.

Athens

Athens is dotted with the fantastic ruins of ancient temples and archeological sites.  For more than 2,500 years, a European metropolis has grown around its most significant and eternal landmark, the Acropolis.  Built on a rocky plateau, the Acropolis is an architectural wonder that towers over the city.  While it may be the birthplace of democracy, Athens is also a creative, modern capital that steps to its own beat.  Get a taste of its café culture, rooftop bars, traditional music clubs and historic neighborhoods of Monastiraki or city center.  Or visit the Athenian Riviera where the palm tree lined streets, sea-facing taverns, open air nightclubs and beautiful beaches showcase another face to Greek city life.
