Hello to all,
I was recenty flying out of ATH and I noticed a majour traffic increase. Since I fly often out of Athens Airport, I noticed that the Arrival boards and Departure Boards were VERY full. This was a great surprise to me because I was used to seeing the airport with "normal" amounts of traffic. Since Lufthansa, Air France, KLM, Alitalia, and Easyjet have all added two more flights daily to Athens, and also seeing Continental and USairways starting flights to ATH, it makes me wonder how and why ATH has become so popular lately. If I am not mistaken, if this traffic gets just a bit more dense the airport will have majour problems with the "B" non-schengen gates, as they will be FULL.
If anyone can give me some clues as to what has happened to make ATH increase its traffic dramatically, in such a short period of time, I would appreciate it.
Thank you in adance,
