Aegean Virtual’s Airport of the Month is Here!
Every month we will select a small Greek airport to feature in our Airport of the Month! What does this mean? Basically, all pilots will have access to all routes to this airport and each flight there will count as double time! Our goal is to discover all of Greece’s hidden gems.
So what airport do we have, you ask? Presenting September’s Airport of the Month…
LGSM - Samos Aristarchos International Airport!
This airport is well known for its very difficult approach for Runway 09, probably the hardest in Europe! Just check it out its charts, and you will see what we mean! Aegean Virtual services it with flights from Athens and Thessaloniki, operated by Olympic Air’s Dash-8. The island of Samos is home to multiple UNESCO World Heritage sites and is a pleasure to discover! It is also known well for its wonderful beaches and its excellent wine production! It is also, as the airport name states, it is the home of the philosopher Aristarchos of Samos!
Our pilots decided to head to LGSM today and were amazed by the scenery and this approach! Here’s a picture of a few of our Dash-8s parked after a flight from LGTS.
