Santorini Thira National (JTR) Airport
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.
The 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 763,539 passengers in 2012, Santorini Airport is served by Olympic Air and Aegean Airlines offering direct flights to Athens (a 45-minute flight), Thessaloniki (a 1.5 hr flight), as well as by charters from Europe. However, as its runway is only 2,125 meters long, and due to its small apron, the airport can only serve six airplanes simultaneously.
The Airport operates between March & October and opens daily 5:30am and closes on average between 9pm & midnight, depending on the day & month.
