As the Easter holidays are winding up, and with summer in sight many Greeks and foreigners are already looking ahead to book their next escapades.

Digital market agency Tourix, which focuses on the Travel & Tourism industries, evaluated the best and worst Greek airports with the highest traffic based on Google user reviews.

The survey analyzed over 30,800 user reviews on Google’s platform for 2023, with some very insightful results emerging.

The top five airports in Greece with the best ratings for 2023 also include Athens International Airport “Eleftherios Venizelos” with a rating of 4.25 out of 5, slipping from the top spot in 2022.
