Around The World Flight 13, Palermo to Athens

A long flight over Mediterranean Sea brings our journey to Athens, the cradle of civilization.


Athens is renowned for its culture, widely regarded as the cradle of civilization. Stunning architecture such as the Parthenon and Acropolis makes Athens a must-see destination for the discerning tourist. 

Athens International Airport “Eleftherios Venizelos” (IATA: ATH, ICAO: LGAV), began operation on 29 March 2001 and is the primary civilian airport that serves the city of Athens and the region of Attica. It is Greece’s busiest airport and it serves as the hub and main base of Aegean Airlines as well as other Greek airlines. The airport was opened in March 2001 to replace the now-closed Athens (Ellinikon) International Airport. The airport is located between the towns of Markopoulo, Koropi, Spata and Loutsa, about 20 km (12 mi) to the east of central Athens (30 km (19 mi) by road, due to intervening hills). The airport is named after Elefthérios Venizélos, the prominent Cretan political figure and Prime Minister of Greece, who made a significant contribution to the development of Greek aviation and the Hellenic Air Force in the 1930s.
