Cephalonia International Airport (IATA: EFLICAO: LGKF) is an airport on the island of Cephalonia, in Greece. The airport opened in 1971 to serve the former municipality Leivathos with improved transportation links; Cephalonia is now a single municipality. A new runway and the current terminal building were constructed in the 1980s.

History[edit]

In December 2015 the privatisation of Cephalonia 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.[4] "We signed the deal today," the head of Greece's privatisation agency HRADF, Stergios Pitsiorlas, told Reuters.[5] According to the agreement, the joint venture will operate the 14 airports (including Cephalonia International Airport) for 40 years as of autumn 2016.
