Traf­fic at Athens In­ter­na­tional Air­port is show­ing clear signs of re­cov­ery, which bides well at the start of 2014, a year when sev­eral for­eign air­lines are plan­ning to re­turn to the coun­try’s main air­port.

Of­fi­cial data showed that De­cem­ber was the third con­sec­u­tive month that posted a yearly in­crease in traf­fic, amount­ing to 4.6 per­cent, af­ter a 0.7 per­cent rise in Novem­ber and 1.3 per­cent growth in Oc­to­ber. De­cem­ber’s rise came from mar­ginal growth (0.6 per­cent) from do­mes­tic traf­fic and a sig­nif­i­cant rise (6.8 per­cent) in in­ter­na­tional traf­fic, for a to­tal of over 795,000 pas­sen­gers.

For the whole of 2013, AIA saw a 400,000-pas­sen­ger de­cline in traf­fic, or 3.2 per­cent, as num­bers dropped from 12.9 mil­lion in 2012 to 12.5 mil­lion in Jan­uaryDe­cem­ber 2013.
