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.

Olympic Air to have additional flights over Easter Weekend

Olympic Air and Aegean Airlines will make additional domestic flights over the Easter weekend to transport the “holy flame” to 17 destinations around Greece. The 2 airlines will charter 3 extra aircraft on Holy Saturday (April 15) to transfer what in the Orthodox tradition is called the “Holy Light” to Larisa, Alexandroupoli, Lemnos, Samos, Chios, Zakynthos, Kefallonia, Mykonos, Santorini, Heraklion, Ioannina, Thessaloniki, Chania, Kos, Lesvos, Rhodes and Corfu.


In April 2017, Olympic Air and Aegean Airlines announced a 5% increase in passenger traffic in Q1 of 2017. Aegean Airlines and Olympic Air recorded a 5 percent increase in passenger traffic in the first quarter of 2017 reaching 2.1 million passengers, the company said on Wednesday. Aegean said the increase is attributed entirely to the international network with the addition and maturity of destinations and the efficient penetration to international markets, leading to a 17-percent growth of international traffic to 1.1 million passengers. Domestic traffic was 6 percent lower than last year’s to slightly less than one million passengers as the company adjusted the activity to soft demand with lower fares, reduced flights and hence achieving improved load factors.
