The Athens International Airport "Eleftherios Venizelos" is one of the largest infrastructure projects in Europe.

Greece's economic growth and the hosting of the 2004 Olympic Games gave rise to a pressing need to construct a new, larger and more contemporary airport, with the capacity to meet the demands of modern-day air travel.

The project commenced on 5 September 1996, and was inaugurated on 27 March 2001. It is considered to be one of the top airports in Southern Europe and has received significant international distinctions for its facilities and the travel experience it offers.

TITAN was the exclusive provider of cement for the airport's entire runway construction project, an exceedingly demanding one, and had a 50% participation in the infrastructure of the remaining buildings.

The two runways measure a total of 7,800 metres, with a distance of 1,575 metres between them. The main terminal stands on four levels, with 14 passenger boarding bridges, whilst the satellite building has 10.

The Athens International Airport is one of the country's "crown jewels", a significant European gate to the South but also a symbol of Greece’s extrovert growth.
