ANYONE who's flown to Athens in the last 14 years will have landed at Eleftherios Venizelos airport.
But until 2001, there was another hub that used to be the Greek capital's main airport, before it was unceremoniously abandoned.
Hellinikon is located 4.3 miles south of Athens and was the only international airport in the city for decades.
After it was constructed in the 1930s, one of the airport's first main uses was a station for the Luftwaffe during the Nazi occupation of Greece.
It was frequently attacked by the allied air forces throughout the Second World War.
It would later be redeveloped after becoming Athens' most important airport for commercial travel by the 1950s.

It served Greece as a transport hub for half a century after that, but was eventually closed in 2001 after it was unable to handle the country's travel demands.
The airport was supposed to have a 10million passenger annual capacity, but served 13million people in its final year of service.
Another airport, Eleftherios Venizelos, opened in 2001 and Hellinikon was shut down in March the same year.
A large portion of the site was converted into a stadium complex and hosted several sporting events at the 2004 Olympic Games.
