Rhodes RHO AIRPORT OVERVIEW

Rhodes Diagoras International Airport RHO serves the Greek island of Rhodes (or 'Rodos') - the largest of the Dodecanese islands. Rhodes Island is known for its ancient history, archaeological sites, Byzantine churches & Venetian fortresses, as well as for its great beaches.
RHO Airport is located on the northwestern tip of Rhodes Island - near the Village of Paradisi - and is 16 km southwest of the City of Rhodes. It can be accessed via a dual carriageway coastal road encircling the island, and is only a 20-minute drive from the city of Rhodes.

- The new Concessionaire Fraport Greece, which is now managing 14 Greek Airports, is starting to make much-needed upgrades to each of those airports, including Rhodes.  While absolute intervention works were necessary during the summer season -  as of Fall 2017 Fraport started to implement all its contractual obligations, bringing the 14 airports up to current international standards within a 4-year span - however, it estimates that it can do it within a shorter period of time).

With a  long runway and 4.2 million passengers in 2016, Rhodes Airport is served by a myriad of domestic, international, regular and low-fare airlines offering flights to Europe and beyond, as well as by many seasonal charters.
