Since March 2001, Athens International Airport keeps offering high-level services, having earned the trust of airlines, passengers, partners, and stakeholders. Having welcomed throughout this period more than 360 million passengers and over 4 million flights, the airport keeps creating significant value for the national, regional & local economy, its shareholders, all stakeholders, and the wider public, continuously seeking to enhance the connectivity of Athens, as a city-break, year-round sustainable destination.

In terms of traffic, the year 2022 ended with Athens International Airport’s traffic amounting to 22.73 million passengers, exceeding the respective 2021 levels by 84.1% and behind the 2019 levels by 11.1%. Overall, during the first eight months of 2023, the airport’s passenger traffic totalled 18.67 million, above the 2022 levels by 27.3% and higher than the respective 2019 levels by 8%.

Key contributors to this positive outlook remain AIA’s renowned Route development and airline marketing strategy, with one of the most comprehensive and innovative airline incentive schemes internationally and a strategic focus on the promotion of “Destination Athens” through initiatives and synergies.

Thanks to its top-notch services, AIA has earned more than 100 significant nternational distinctions and awards. The airport community, with more than 300 companies and 16,000 employees, constitutes one of the biggest “employment engines” in Greece, generating growth, jobs and value.
