Airport of Chania

New connections from Europe to the airport of Chania are coming. German aviation company Lufthansa Group saw year-over-year passenger growth to Greece in 2017 of 12 percent and expects a similar increase to the country in 2018. “This reflects the growing demand for popular Greek destinations and the tourism dynamic of Greece,” Lufthansa Group General manager Passenger Sales Greece & Cyprus, Konstantinos Tzevelekos, said on Wednesday.


According to Tzevelekos, for summer 2018, the Group’s network has been enhanced with new routes to and from popular Greek destinations.

Lufthansa Group operates in Greece with five airlines (Lufthansa, SWISS, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines and Eurowings), has a presence in 20 Greek airports and offers 443 direct flights per week to 17 European destinations.
