Santorini Airport JTRmore info
Santorini Airport, Santorini International Airport with JTR as its IATA code, is a small airport, as is Santorini itself anyway. Santorini Airport is the largest one of the southern Aegean Sea and operates as a military aircraft base.
There are direct flights to Santorini from Athens, Thessaloniki and Heraklion. The flight duration from Athens is about 45 minutes, from Thessaloniki 90 minutes and from Heraklion just 30 minutes. Furthermore, you can fly from Santorini to other Cycladic islands as well, while during summer around 200,000 tourists arrive in Santorini via charter flights from abroad.
Santorini Airport was built in 1972 and its buildings followed the rules of traditional Cycladic architecture. Since then, however, the ever-increasing requirements of increasing traffic (2,254,926 passengers in 2018), lead to the modernization of the small airport.
The terminal building was built in 1989. Santorini airport has, among other services, a duty-free shop, restaurants, cafes and many travel and car rental agencies. During the winter, it mainly serves flights from Athens and Thessaloniki with Olympic and Aegean Airlines.
