Thessaloniki International Airport is the second busiest airport in Greece. The airport is 15km from Thessaloniki city centre and is well-placed for holiday destinations in Northern Greece like the Halkidiki peninsula. There is a reasonable choice of cafes, bars, restaurants and shops. The airport has good transport connections to the city centre.
The choice of departure airport increases in the long beach holiday season, when tour operator Thomson operates charter flights. Thomson usually fly from Gatwick, Luton, East Midlands and Manchester. Flights are seasonal, usually beginning in May and ending in September.
