Product information "29Palms - LGSR - Santorini Airport & Island MSFS"

Santorini (officially Thira) is a Greek island in the southern Aegean Sea, about 200km from Greek mainland. It belongs to the Cyclades group of islands, being the southernmost member of it. It covers an area of ~ 73 km². The island was previously named Kalliste (which means the prettiest) or Strogili (meaning circular), due to its relevant initial shape, resembling a circle.

Santorini was the site of one of the largest volcanic eruptions in recorded history, which occurred approximately 3.600 years ago. The eruption created a large caldera in the middle of the circle, surrounded by volcanic ash deposits and sea. The island created in the middle is named Nea Kameni. The remaining parts of the Strogili island compose today’s landmass, which consists of the separated islands of Thira, Therasia, Palaia Kameni, Aspronisi and Christiana.

The Airport
Santorini airport (IATA:JTR, ICAO:LGSR) is located at the southeastern side of the island, close to Kamari village. It is both a Civilian and Military airport, however the military activity is very little. The airport first operated in 1972.

It has a main asphalt runway (15/33) which is 7,208 feet (2,197 m) in length and (only) 30m in width. The parallel taxiway was built and marked to runway specification but is now marked and lighted as a taxiway. The airport can accommodate medium-sized jets like the Boeing 757, Boeing 737 and Airbus A320 series as well as smaller aircraft such as ATR 42/72, Dash 8, AvroRJ and Fokker 70/100 on an apron that is connected to the taxiway with three intersections.

The terminal and apron were renovated and redesigned respectively in 2021 increasing the aircraft and passenger capacity of the airport. It can serve simultaneously up to nine airliners at respective parking positions.
