History of Eleftherios Venizelos Airport

Athens International Airport (AIA) or “Eleftherios Venizelos” is the largest versatile hub of Greece. The airport remains bustling round the clock due to the weight of international traffic, owing to its location in the country’s capital, Athens. After its inauguration in 2001, AIA became the pioneer of introducing carbon neutral measures for air travel in Greece.
