Kavala International Airport “Megas Alexandros” (KVA/LGKV)

Kavala International Airport (KVA/LGKV) is one of the best equipped airports in southern Europe. Due to the combination of the sunny Mediterranean and the stable Southern Continental weather conditions, Kavala International Airport is the ideal location for both Visual and Instrument Flight training.

VOR/DME and NDB locator are available at the airport, while an ILS is soon to be installed. In the meantime the nearby Thessaloniki airport ILS will be used for instrument landing training. Another two ILS equipped nearby airports are also used for training purposes.

There are a couple of daily flights to and from Athens and several flights to and from other (mainly) European Airports, on regular or seasonal basis. During the summer many international charter flights bring holidaymakers to the popular nearby Island of Thasos and other nearby areas.

The busy Thessaloniki International Airport “Makedonia” (SKG/LGTS) is now only 90 minutes away by car, or by regular inexpensive buses, and it can be used as an alternative arrival or departure airport. The quieter airport of Alexandroupolis (AXD/LGAL) is even closer than Thessaloniki airport, but with a less frequent bus schedule.

We are located in one of the most idyllic locations in Northern Greece
As the principal port of Eastern Macedonia & Thrace, Kavala is located 160km east of Thessaloniki. A city of amazing history, magnificent landscape and wonderful people, founded in the late 7th century B.C. as Neapolis, renamed as Christoupolis during the Byzantine era and finally as Kavala, since the 16th century, the city has always been a place of desire through history, scattered with monuments of historical interest.

The picturesque location and the historical monuments are the main reasons that Kavala is one of the most significant touristic destinations in Northern Greece. The old town of Kavala, the archeological site of Philippi with the ancient theatre and its inclusion in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Roman Egnatia Via and the first European steps of Apostle Paul, up to the significant moments of Modern Greek History, mark the importance of the area. Additionally, the beauty of the natural landscape can hardly be described. The mountains Paggaeo and Symvolo, combined with the golden beaches and Nestos river, form a magnificent scenery, while the nearby island of Thassos is a must for the summer months.
