Milos Island National Airport is an airport in Milos, Greece (IATA: MLOICAO: LGML). Milos is an island in the Cyclades. The airport is located 5 kilometers southeast of the harbour of the island. The airport was opened on January 17, 1973. On October 1995, a new terminal was taken into use.

Infrastructure[edit]

As the airport has a small apron (7,800 square meters) and a short runway, only Bombardier Dash 8 sized aircraft or smaller ones are able to use the airport. Plans exist for a 2000 by 45 meter runway at a new location and the expansion of the apron space to 26,000 square meters. However, due to the economical difficulties, these plans have been suspended. The apron can handle only one Dash 8 sized aircraft or 2 light aircraft at one given time.
