Hey everyone! While flying out of LGAV, I decided to do some spotting, both from a spot near the gates and from the plane itself. These pictures were made by an iPad Pro. A quick description of the pictures will be below.
Airport Name: Athens Eleftherios Venizelos Airport
Area of Spotting: All over Terminals A & B, including in the plane.
Aegean Airlines A320, christened “Nostos”. Here, it is preparing for departure to Paris-Charles de Gaulle (LFPG).
Swiss Intl. Airlines
Swiss A321, preparing for its return flight to Zurich (LSZH). Fun fact: it had over an hour delay, which is uncommon at LGAV.
Scandinavian A321, about to push back for its return to Copenhagen (EKCH).
Iberia’s A320 taxiing to Runway 21L for its return to Madrid-Barajas (LEMD).
British Airways A320 pushing back for its return to London Heathrow (EGLL).
Aeroflot’s A321 starting up its engines for the return flight to Moscow-Sheremetyevo (UUEE)!
The big Etihad B789, preparing for its return to Abu Dhabi (OMAA)! (Fun fact: an Etihad A320 had already left for Abu Dhabi just a few minutes previously)
This one, for me, was the most mystifying one of all…this Air Canada 763 should have taken off for Toronto (CYYZ) several hours before, but stayed on the taxiway for over an hour - this thankfully didn’t pose a large problem as there were two parallel taxiways.
That’s all when it comes to single planes - in the two pictures below I’ll describe the few aircraft in the picture without focusing too much on the routes.
Aegean Airlines (again)
Here you can see an Aegean A319 and two Aegean A320s preparing for their outbound leg.
The Aegean A319 (SX-DGF) was preparing for its departure to Istanbul-Atatürk (LTBA).
Due to the sheer amount of Aegean A320s in the airport at that moment (about 10-15), I unfortunately wasn’t able to identify their respective destinations.
An Olympic Air Dash-8 Q200 from Leros Island (LGLE) turning into its parking spot, with another Olympic Air ATR 42-600 having arrived from Naxos Island (LGNX). Behind it (but hidden in the picture) is a Sky Express ATR 42 having landed from Samos Island (LGSM).
Not related to Regional Airlines, but a Ukraine International B738 parked from Kiev (UKBB) is also visible to the left.
Thanks for reading this thread! Have a lot more pictures than this but as they were mainly Aegean/Olympic I wanted to get a bit more of a mix of airlines. Let me know if I could do anything better and let me know what you think! :)
