RHODES AIRPORT (RHO)
Rhodes Airport Diagoras has one terminal which is comprised of two separate buildings joined by a corridor. On the ground and first floor departures are served with facilities for check-in, baggage checks, passenger screening, shops, restaurants, cafes and departure gates. Arrivals are from the ground floor’s southern corner with passport control, customs, car rental services, and baggage reclaim carousels in this area.
Rhodes Airport Diagoras, is one of the most busiest airport in Greece with nearly 5 million passengers.
To get to Rhodes Town via taxi, from Rhodes Airport Diagoras it takes about 20 min without traffic and will cost about 25 euro.
Over the years, improvements have been made to Rhodes Airport Diagoras, with expansions to facilities, new taxiways, and replacement airport buildings being built to accommodate the large number of tourists arriving on the island each and every day. An upgraded passenger terminal was opened in 2005 to provide a more modern experience for passengers. As it stands right now the airport covers an area of over 60,000 m2 making it one of the largest airports in Greece.
In December 2015 the airport was bought and privatised along with thirteen other regional airports by a joint venture between Fraport AG and Copelouzos Group. The contract they signed with the state privatisation fund gives them the right to operate Rhodes International airport and the other thirteen airports for 40 years from that date.
