Rhodes International Airport “Diagoras” peacefully nestles on the island of Rhodes, in 16 kilometers south-west to the city of Rhodes. It is the fourth largest airport in Greece due to the total number of passenger transportation. The airport started to service passengers on June 28, 1997. It replaced the old building located a few kilometers east, which is currently used as a military airfield.
The building was named after Diagor, who was known as a wrestler and the Olympic champion during the period of antiquity. He came from the city of Yalissos and won all the Great Panellian matches. People remembered his family as “the family of Olympians”: apart from Diagor, his three sons and two grandsons were crowned as Olympic champions.
The gross area of the airfield comprises 110 600 square meters. It can accommodate 13 aircraft. A terminal covers 20 753 square meters. The overall capacity of passengers is 1700 people. The works on its reconstruction and its expansion will take place in the nearest future. There you can find car rental offices, a parking lot, and a duty-free shop.

However, if you decide to take a ride at night or get stuck in a traffic jam, be ready to spend extra money. Those taxis which manage service in major airports, provide a better quality of amenities if compared to small airfields. However, this so-called “better service” could hardly compete with facilities offered by a transfer company. Taxis, as a rule, are rather old and do provide neither seats for children not help with the luggage.
