Accidents and incidents[edit]

  • On 12 December 2009, an Olympic Air ATR 42 (registration SX-BPA), performing flight OA6 from Athens to Naxos, was on a visual approach to runway 36 and had been handed off to Naxos Tower by air traffic control. The airplane was then seen in full landing configuration on final approach to Paros' runway 35 (length 710 meters/2300 feet) on the adjacent island. Paros Tower made contact on its frequency and Naxos Tower and ordered the aircraft to go around. The crew aborted the approach and subsequently landed safely in Naxos.[4]
