Car Hire Kavala Airport
Kavala International Airport "Alexander the Great" is located about 30km from the centre of Kavala in the municipality of Nestos, Greece. Originally located at the Greek Air Force base near the village of Amygdaleonas, Kavala Airport moved closer to the town of Chrysoupol in 1981, vastly improving the service to the adjacent island of Thassos and the city of Xanthi. The airport operates regular flights to Athens, with seasonal flights to destinations including Dusseldorf, Prague, and Warsaw.
Kavala is an attractive palm-fringed town capped by a castle and enlivened by its Panagia old quarter. A ferry hub for the Northeastern Aegean Islands (particularly Thassos), it has several attractions of its own, including the aqueduct of Ottoman Sultan Süleyman the Magnificent, a Byzantine fortress, and appealing cafes.
