Athens Airport voted 3rd best in World

It’s no surprise to people who’ve used it but the sparkling clean, efficient, state-of-the-art Athens International Airport Eleftherios Venizelos was ranked third of 132 airports in the world by the site AirHelp.

The company helps travelers seek compensation for delays, cancellations and overbooked flights and created rankings using three variables: on-time performance, service quality and food and shopping options. In 2018, the company surveyed more than 40,000 passengers across 40 countries on their airport experiences.

The ranking gave another reputation boost to the airport despite occasional strikes the past few years over austerity measures and other issues that have disrupted travel plans for many tourists and others.

The Athens International Airport has the 27th highest passenger traffic rates in Europe with some 24 million travelers passing through the airport in 2018.

In April, the airport won the first prize in the category Over 20 Million Passengers Yearly at the Routes Europe 2019 awards held in Hanover, Germany, beating out competition from Belgium, Denmark, Norway, Germany and Russia, following a vote exclusively by airlines, which reward excellence in aviation worldwide.

It is actually quite good. There are enough shops to be interesting but not like MAN where you just want to get out of the place but you're locked in. It's clean and comfortable enough.  Just try not to get a flight to/from the distant "island stands" they're at least 20 mins walk away.
