"Macedonia" (Greek: Διεθνής Κρατικός Αερολιμένας Θεσσαλονίκης «Μακεδονία», (IATA: SKG, ICAO: LGTS), officially known as Macedonia International Airport (Greek: Διεθνές Αεροδρόμιο Μακεδονία), is located about 15 km SE of the city center of Thessaloniki. The airport is the second largest state owned and operated airport in the country after Heraklion (LGIR) airport on the isle of Crete. It opened in 1930 and was the second busiest airport in Greece in terms of flights served and the third busiest in terms of passengers served in 2012 having served over 4 million pas‐ sengers. It is the main airport of Northern Greece and serves the city of Thessaloniki.

The spectacular approach to RW16 offers unique views above the city’s most famous landmarks before descending above water to finally land. Thessaloniki often gets completely fogged in, especially at evening and early morning hours, when wind is calm due to the humidity of adjacent Thermaikos gulf sea. For this reason ILS 16 and the runway & taxiway lights are for CATII category for precision approaches down to 150ft above the runway and/or 450m visibility. On the other side, the approach is equally thrilling as you will have to stay alert of the uneven terrain and pay attention to rather steep descent before landing on RW34.

Runway 10/28 is currently closed due to construction works taking place to further expand the runway and accomodate larger aircraft and increase safety as aircraft will have greater flexibility and visual contact in bad weather conditions.
