Athens Airport

Athens International Airport S.A. was established in June 1996 in the form of a partnership involving the Greek State and a private consortium led by the German company Hochtief Aktiengesellshaft. This consortium was the winner of the tender for the airport building contractor held during 1991-1993 under a BOOT scheme (Build – Own – Operate –Transfer).

The beginning of operation of Athens International Airport "Eleftherios Venizelos" on March 28th, 2001 marked the onset of a new era for air transport in Greece.

Athens International Airport "Eleftherios Venizelos" is one of the most modern, functional and safest airports in the world. Today, it constitutes the largest hub of air travel in southeastern Europe and forms a strong pole of financial and social development in the Attica basin.

Since the beginning of operations, the airport gained the trust of both passengers and airlines, while it soon earned a great number of key international awards. Today, it is regarded as one of the best and safest airports in the world and continues its steady development thanks to the constant improvement of its performance.

AIA pursues a corporate policy based on the principles of responsible and efficient collaboration with all its stakeholders - shareholders, air travelers, airlines, businesses, clients, business associates, local community and employees - in an effort to give everlasting value to the entire range of its activities.

This policy is also applied on other vital sectors, such as public safety, services provided, company employees and businesses operating within the airport's premises. In the field of Corporate Responsibility, the airport follows contemporary practices that often surpass the requirements imposed by legislation and the currently applicable rules and regulations.

Athens International Airport having as a corporate strategic goal to create sustainable value for all stakeholders and caring to offer value-for-money services to its customers, applies a two fold strategy:

The aeronautical strategy pursuing the sustainability and growth of current traffic and the development of regional and low-cost-carriers traffic and the non-aeronautical strategy which entails the development of high quality consumer related products and services, the exploitation and development of the airport’s assets and real-estate as well as the integration, management and advancement of ITT systems.

At the same time AIA operates in a socially and environmentally responsible way and provides to all its stakeholders an operating and working environment that meets the increasing demands on safety and security.
