The airport of Athens, Greece is named after the former prime minister Eleftherios Venizelos. It is the biggest one in the country, located 25 kilometers afar from the city and transports 16 millions of passengers each year.
The old airport Ellinikon was opened in 1971 but already then it was clear that it would be too small. Therefore immediately planning for a new airport started. 1995 this project started with the help of German companies.
