Helipads For Greek Island Destinations

The construction of four new helipads, three in the Aegean and one on an Ionian island, were announced last month by the government – Ithaca, Dodecanese, Patmos, Tinos, Lesvos.

All four projected helipads will be able to operate day and night for helicopters of up to 15 meters – 30 meters for the facility on Ithaca. Now, if the capital’s hospitals could create helipads tourists could feel more secure in case of a health emergency.

In related development, the transport ministry also clarified that the Athens-Leros air link will be included in the so-called “unprofitable” domestic routes, as it meets relevant European Union criteria. Leros is in the northern Dodecanese, south of Patmos.
