Airport Overview

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us about their time at Santorini (Thira) International Airport.

What to Expect

The passenger facilities at Santorini Island International Airport consist of a small terminal with a duty free shops and a couple of shops and cafes. As a resort-style destination, the airport is often crowded during peak seasons and reviewers report long check-in and security lines, along with insufficient airport staff to process passenger needs. As of this update (May 2018) there was no WiFi and there are no private lounges at this airport.

Where to Sleep

While the airport’s website says the terminal is open year-round 24-hours per day, at least one reviewer was denied overnight access, and we’ve heard that hours may be seasonally based. That said, we’ve also heard seating is limited, so any sleeping may be floor-based. Have a travel mat or sleeping bag handy if you’re thinking about staying overnight. For uninterrupted sleep, there are numerous hotels near the airport. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.
