The new upgraded Airport "Macedonia" in Thessaloniki is ready to welcome you to any destination…

Greece » Thessaloniki

"MACEDONIA" airport is one of the 14 upgraded and safe airports that Fraport Greece delivers three months earlier than the original plans and from its contractual obligation to the Greek State, to Greeks and travelers from all over the world. As part of its mandate for taking over management and operations at the 14 airports (including the airports of: Thessaloniki, Corfu, Kefalonia, Kos, and Mytilene), Fraport Greece has prepared a comprehensive plan for the modernization and development of the airports. The company’s plan includes immediate projects and development works for upgrading the airports’ facilities, which will contribute significantly to improving the overall customer travel experience, while responding to the expected increase in passenger traffic. Fraport Greece launched the airport development program in April 2017, in tandem with the start-up of its concession for managing eleven island and three mainland airports across Greece. Despite various challenges, construction works advanced successfully throughout the first three years, including the peak summer travel periods – and even continued during the pandemic; having to overcome many difficulties and challenges. In January 2021, Fraport Greece concluded the last of the construction works for the 14 airports – well ahead of the April 2021 contractual deadline.
