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.


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.
