A major aspect of Athens Flying Week is that it will boost the tourism in the city of Athens. In this effort, a great contribution has come from the Municipalities of Acharnes, Palaio Faliro and Athens, the Greek National Tourism Organization, the Association of Greek Tourism Enterprises, the Hellenic Association of Professional Congress Organizers, Marketing Greece and the Athens-Attica & Argosaronic Hotel Association.
