Santorini Thira National JTR Airport Overview

Santorini Thira National Airport JTR serves the Greek island of Santorini (part of the Cyclades Islands situated in the Aegean Sea), and known for its white-washed traditional houses of its villages situated on top of 300 meter cliffs, with a panoramic view of the volcano submerged below. Santorini's black sandy beaches, its archeological sites and its spectacular sundowns draw thousands of visitors each year.

JTR Airport is located north of the village of Kamari, next to the Monolithos area, and 6 km southeast of Fira, the capital of the island of Santorini.

With an estimated 700,000 passengers a year, Santorini Airport is served by domestic airlines within Greece, and by European charters. However, do to short runway restrictions,  the airport can only serve six airplanes simultaneously.  (Since Olympic Air & Aegean Airlines merged, there is still no new airline name).
