Mykonos Airport[3] (IATA: JMK, ICAO: LGMK) is the international airport of the Greek island of Mykonos, located 4 kilometers from the town of Mykonos. It serves flights to domestic and European metropolitan destinations due to the island being a popular leisure destination.


The airport first operated in 1971.[4]

During the off-peak tourist season the airport has limited flight connections and operating hours. On the other hand, during the 2014 peak summer season it was found necessary to severely limit general aviation activity, allowing only a technical stop of 2 hours.[5] For the summer of 2016, NOTAM B0335/16 introduces a similar limitation, but now even down to a one hour's stop.

In December 2015, the privatisation of Mykonos International Airport and 13 other regional airports of Greece was finalised with the signing of the agreement between the Fraport AG/Copelouzos Group joint venture and the state privatisation fund.[6] "We signed the deal today," the head of Greece's privatisation agency HRADF, Stergios Pitsiorlas, told Reuters.[7] According to the agreement, the joint venture will operate the 14 airports (including Mykonos International Airport) for 40 years.

Fraport started managing the airport from 11 April 2017.[8] On 22 March 2017, the Fraport-Greece presented its master plan for the 14 regional airports including the Mykonos Airport.[9] Immediate actions that will be implemented at the airports as soon as Fraport Greece takes over operations before the launch of the Summer 2017 season include general clean-up, decrease wait times to check in and reduce flight delays, upgrading sanitary facilities as well as enhancing services and offering new free Internet connection (WiFi).

The following summarizes the enhancement changes that will be implemented for Mykonos Airport under Fraport Greece's investment plan until 2021:

  • Expanding and remodeling the terminal - 50 percent increase in the total size of the terminal at , with the construction of a new terminal area
  • New fire station
  • Reorganizing apron
  • 33 percent increase in the number of check-in counters (from 12 to 16)
  • 17 percent increase in the number of departure gates (from 6 to 7)
  • 25 percent increase in the number of security-check lanes (from 4 to 5)
