Elliniko (Greek: Ελληνικό, meaning "Greek") is a suburb of Athens, Greece. Since the 2011 local government reform, it is part of the municipality Elliniko-Argyroupoli, of which it is a municipal unit.[2] Elliniko is known for the Hellinikon Olympic Complex, built on the grounds of the former Ellinikon International Airport for the 2004 Summer Olympics.

Geography[edit]

Elliniko is situated near the Saronic Gulf coast, 10 km south of Athens city centre. The former airport is in the western part of the municipal unit, near the coast. Most of the residential area is in the eastern part, east of the former airport. The northern part of the airport has been converted to a sports complex. There are plans to convert the remaining part into a park.

Elliniko is well connected to the centre of Athens through a new line of the Athens metro (Elliniko station). The Athens Tram serves the coastal part of Elliniko.

Economy[edit]

Hellenic Imperial Airways has its head office in Elliniko.[3] The Greek Civil Aviation Authority also has its head office in Elliniko.[4]

Climate[edit]

Elliniko has an average annual temperature of 18.2°C and receives 364.8 mm (14.36 in) of precipitation per year, just 0.8 mm more than would categorize it as a semi-arid rather than a Mediterranean climate.
