The Terminal of Mykonos International Airport
Mykonos Airport is a small airfield, despite being among the top 10 busiest Greek airports. Until recently, the JMK amenities were not only basic but actually insufficient. However, in late 2015, Fraport-Greece purchased the airport (along with 13 other airports across the country), inducing big changes in its operation as well as its provided services. Nowadays, JMK Airport remains a single-terminal airport with limited dimensions and facilities, in spite of its high passenger traffic during the summer months. However, it is fully refurbished and modernized.
JMK Airport’s Architectural Design
It may not offer one-of-a-kind services, yet it definitely has one of the most notable architectural designs. The extensive renovation works that were completed in 2021 led to a unique result, inspired by the local architecture, yet including many modern decorative touches too. In fact, the JMK airport terminal is based on the Myconian pigeon houses, reflecting clearly the Aegean tradition and conveying the Cycladic ambiance to the passengers from the very first moment they land at Mykonos Airport.
