The Athens International Airport (“Eleftherios Venizelos”) was named “Airport of the Year” in the 10-30 million-passenger category by internationally acclaimed web portal Air Transport News, at an event that took place in Geneva.
Air Transport News is the only entity to award all major sectors and leaders of the airline industry globally.
AIA general manager Yiannis Paraschis said that “2014 was a year of spectacular growth in airport flow, in an especially sensitive economic and political environment,” and said that the airport “managed to respond successfully to challenges, protect its business model and continue to create value at all levels.”
What played a key role in this, he added, was a targeted policy of incentives to improve airport flow and “the actions we carry out annually to strengthen Athens’ attractiveness as a tourism destination.”
