Mykonos, Greece closes for runway upgrade works
Olympic Air (OA, Athens Int'l) has temporarily suspended its 12x weekly Mykonos-Athens Int'l service after the island airport closed for two weeks for refurbishment. According to the airport's operator, Fraport Greece, reconstruction of the runway became necessary after the previous surfacing exceeded its lifespan. Consequently, the airport closed to traffic, except for emergency helicopter services, on November 13 and will remain closed until November 29.
Olympic Air is currently the only airline serving the Aegean island located roughly halfway between mainland Greece and Turkey. Mykonos, like most of the Greek airports, sees a heavily seasonal traffic pattern - according to the ch-aviation capacity module, in total 149 frequencies weekly are scheduled for June 2018, more than a tenfold increase over the winter traffic. This number does not include a significant number of charter flights operated to Mykonos as well during the summer.
Fraport Greece, a joint-venture between Fraport and Copelouzos Group, began a forty-year concession covering fourteen Greek regional airports in March 2017. The concessionaire intends to invest heavily in most of the airports. At Mykonos, besides a new runway surface, Fraport Greece has announced plans to expand the terminal by 50%, as well as increase the number of check-in counters, security screening lanes, and departure gates.
