Rhodes (RHO) Airport History

The airfield at Rhodes Maritsa originally served as the island’s airport, but as flights by commercial airlines and private jets to and from Rhodes became more frequent, more space became necessary. Since expansion wasn’t possible, Rhodes Diagoras Airport was built. It opened in 1977 and the original airfield was closed, although it is still used as an event venue. The new airport is much more spacious than its predecessor and thus better suited to serving passengers of major airlines and charter flights from Rhodes on their way to European and worldwide destinations as well as for those arriving at the beloved holiday spot.
