Kreta Airport is also known as the Heraklion Airport (IATA Code: HDR) and is located on the island of Kreta, one of the most famous of the Greek islands south of mainland Greece in the Aegean Sea. The civilian airport shares space and facilities with Greek military forces. The airport serves as a hub for numerous domestic carriers including Cyprus Airways, Aegean Airlines, BlueBird Airways and SkyExpress. Its two runways and main terminal serve approximately 5 million passengers a year with just over 40,000 flights. Construction of a new airport is underway and is expected to be complete sometime in 2015. At that time the Heraklion Airport will suspend civilian operations.
