Flying to Thessaloniki

With a population of around 400,000, Thessaloniki is Greece's second largest city and home to a number of Byzantine, Ottoman, Paleochristian, and Sephardic Jewish structures.

Thessaloniki International Airport (airport code SKG), or Macedonia Airport, services the region and is 16 kilometres outside the city. It serves nearly four million passengers and is Greece's third busiest airport. Aegean Airlines, Air Berlin, Astra Airlines, and Olympic Air service the most destinations from this airport. In addition, Cyprus Airways and Malev Hungarian Airlines fly the most frequently from Thessaloniki.

The White Tower of Thessaloniki is the city's symbol. Originally a fortification by the Ottomans, the tower became a prison and site of mass executions. It was whitewashed and remodelled in 1912.

The Church of Hagios Demetrios, a UNESCO World Heritage Site was first constructed in 4th century AD. Following the Great Fire of 1917 and decades of restoration, the Church was re-consecrated in 1949.

Thessaloniki is has Northern Greece's most active nightlife. From taverns to bars to clubs, enjoy a cocktail on the seafront or even on a floating bar. Nikis’ Avenue is crowded all day and night.
