Athens International Airport posted a significant +13% increase in its passenger traffic during the Orthodox Easter period (22.04.05-08.05.05) compared to the corresponding period last year. During the above period, a total of 772,292 passengers travelled through Eleftherios Venizelos Airport on scheduled, extra and charter flights.
Analytically, domestic traffic grew by +6% increase (265,715 passengers), whereas international traffic marked an impressive increase of +17% (506,577 passengers).
Charter traffic, with 39.222 passengers, experienced a significant increase of +79%.
The +13% increase in AIA`s Easter passenger traffic is especially noteworthy, since this year the Catholic and Orthodox Easter did not coincide, as they did in 2004.
In May, Athens International Airport continues to experience a significant increase in its passenger traffic, driven by the remarkable increase in the international sector.
